With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, I wanted to post something near and dear to my heart.
Recently on a Sunday afternoon, my daughter, Sophia Rose asked me to “leave the kitchen” so she could.... “Make a surprise for you, Mommy”.
Of course I obliged.
This is what I found when she asked me back to the kitchen:
A chocolate Rice Krispie bar adorned with whipcream and sprinkles.
All by herself, for no particular reason.
FAST and Fancy is clearly rubbing off!
All my feelings of inadequacy and guilt fled my body. It was short lived but nonetheless a priceless moment in time.
I have always incorporated FANCY into Sophia’s life as much as I can.
We enjoy tea parties on a regular basis both at local tea rooms, but also at home. I have quite a collection of porcelain china including teacups, teapots, plates and related fare and we use them all the time without hesitation.
I am happy to say that we have had so many impromptu tea parties at home, I have lost count.
I know we are raising a special, loving, kind hearted, thoughtful child.
Is she perfect?
Is she perfect to me?
Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate being a mom, but also to reflect on the beauty of our children and acknowledge the accomplishments we have made throughout the year.
Happy Mother’s Day
