Mother Wishes

Oh man, I've been busy. Just finished the last of my training for the online TA job tonight. My status with that is waiting and seeing. A job offer may be on the horizon. Really.

I wanted to say Happy Belated Mother's Day to all the mamas and the people appreciating their mamas and the people who have lost their mamas. This weekend went by so fast but it was good. My little angel monsters brought home lovely handmade cards from school. The cards were definitely my best Mother's Day gifts.

There was some rowdy laughing about what Violet dictated to her preschool teachers on the inside of my beautiful blue card. I received the card at the preschool Mother's Day luncheon last week. The kids sang songs and presented us with soft squares of egg salad and peanut butter sandwiches made with their chubby not-trustworthy-in-the-hygiene-department hands. I had several.

I had to wonder if Daisy even knew me when she handed me this card yesterday. We've never played tag before and . . . good at math? Is she pretending that someone else is her mom again?! Then someone reminded me that I'm really good at first grade math. Oh right. Maybe we played tag once. At least she got my age right.
