Mother's Day

Besides VE Day, there was something else special going on yesterday. It was Mother's Day, of course. Being a totally crummy daughter, I ordered a flower for my mom's garden, but too late for her to get it by yesterday, forgot to send a card and didn't even call until late in the day, when she was out and so all I did was leave a voicemail. At least I don't demand much either.

I got a lovely card from The Boy and some bath salts that they made at school, and Justin took dictation for a card from The Girl. The Boy wanted to make me breakfast in bed, but on a Sunday morning in the hustle and bustle of getting ready for church that was out. Justin decided to take my picture with the kidlets even though it made us a minute or two later than normal for Bible class. They sure are cute, huh?

After church, we invited another family over for steaks and whatnot. I wish I had company more often, because it is a lot of fun. I just don't like the cleaning that it requires.

Oh my . . . this is so weird.
I add -let to EVERYTHING. Kidlets. Husbandlets. Babelets. Houselets. Various friends whose names have been corrupted (and who have borne it most bravely) with -let at the end.
AND I went to Waldorf schools for a number of years.
Incidentally, Nabokov does the -let adding thing too, but I don't think he had anything to do with the Waldorf school system. Nor was his first name "Jordana."

What a great picture!
And, in regards to the other comment here, we use the term siblet...
Happy belated Mother's Day George!

They ARE cute! Every Mother's Day that you get to hold your children in your arms is a good one.
I think kidlets is a good term, as "kids" can have a negative connotation, i.e. baby goats.
[Although the way some youngsters eat and butt heads, goats is not too far off ... and I don't mean to imply the Adams youngsters.]
