Disappointed when they realized the KT Tunstall concert tickets bought months in advance conflicted with mothers day the kids took us moms for dinner Saturday instead! Fine with me, it wasn't near as busy then!
My Princess had quite a precise order, a few changes in the mix. Bryan ordered straight off the menu, no changes. It came to me, surprise surprise, I too had some specifics to my order. Bryan's mom ordered, exact as the menu stated! Mom with ten kids unsure at first what to order, versus mother of one who's exact in what she wants! With a princessy daughter who also knows exactly what she wants, always seems to get what she wants, and for a good price too!
Embarrassed that we wanted so many specifics, I kibitzed with the waiter about the differences between a mother of ten and a mother of one. Pepper assured him she tipped well! We had tons of laughs, and a very pleasant evening. I think I even won over the waiter. I am one of the lucky ones, who is treated with respect everyday!
Sunday I played a few online games of scrabble, had a nice bath while the kids made a roast infused with garlic, mashed potatoes, and a mango salad. I finished it off by making the gravy, and cutting up the meat! We made strawberry margaritas and a friend came for dinner! The kids left at six and we had a marvelous evening chatting! It was my favorite kind of day!
