Happy Mother's Day to me

Yesterday the family let me stay in bed until 10:42 a.m.! It was glorious. I had gotten up and was getting dressed when Nathaniel came in the room.

He put his hands on his hips and said, "WELL. I guess we'll have to make you waffles for SUPPER instead!"

Oops. I guess they were planning to make breakfast for me. Maybe next year! Sleeping in was an even better gift.

Here are some questions I posted last year or year before last, and when a friend posted them online last week, it reminded me I needed to pull them out again. This time, Jakey was old enough to participate!
