One of my best friends, who is expecting a little one, sent me an email saying that she had taken a day trip to visit Sprinkles in Dallas. She told me that tears came to her eyes when she bit into the peanut butter chocolate one. And because she knew eating all that sugar would make her sick on an empty stomach, she drove through Keller's on the way there. Oh my gosh, I love this friend so much and it made my whole day that she admitted to crying over a cupcake. That right there is a reason to love being pregnant and to love those who are pregnant.
Usually Jackson's daddy takes him to mother's day out, but this morning I took him because they were having "Muffins with Mommy." I tried to look cute because I know how proud of my mom's cuteness I always was when she came to my school. We sat at his little table in little chairs and shared some little muffins. Jackson was in a great mood and very into the muffins, so it was fun. They showed a video they had taken of the kids on the playground. Seriously, I almost asked if I could have a copy. It was that cute.
At lunchtime Curt and I took my car to get inspected and then we went to eat lunch together. When he suggested Chick-fil-a, a part of me died. Really? A fast food place when we are all alone? We ended up at Cheddar's and to celebrate I left the bacon and cheese on my World Class Chicken Sandwich.
I'm very thankful to have that car inspection over with. Historically, I am one who goes months past the expiration date. But last year I got pulled over when a policeman saw that my sticker was bad. And it just so happened that my license, registration, and inspection were ALL expired. Dang, Gina. I had to take myself and my three-month-old down to the courthouse and fork over some major cash flow. And that was the end of that. I now deal very promptly with those wicked expired stickers.
Jackson is getting three molars right now. Poor thing. This week he has become proficient in crawling up on the couch and on the big green chair where I do my work. This is going to get interesting. He thinks it's amusing to bang on the keyboard. He has started doing some major body flailing during his fits. Honestly, it's the funniest thing I've ever seen and I cannot keep from giggling. Now when it starts happening in public I will not be so quick to laugh. The sweetest thing he's doing right now is saying a long, drawn out "Oh." He's in fact done it four times in the last 30 seconds.
I'll leave you with this. Jackson's Mother's Day Out note said that the activities he enjoyed today were (A) Making a mother's day surprise AND (B) Looking at himself in the mirror.
