Happy mother's day! Our celebration was enriched by having Jill's parents in town for the weekend. Rick and I cooked a chicken/bratwurst/potato spear lunch, and we ate outside on this gorgeous day.
Jill and I also took advantage of the grandparents' visit by taking a date tonight. We were the only guests eating outside at Milo's, so we felt quite special.
Clara is getting more demanding (I would say unreasonable except that she is 2). Sometimes we can convince her to do what we wish (go to bed (eventually), stop pushing Janny, put toys away) and sometimes not (e.g., eating food that she doesn't like (that she's never tried), using the potty). She is unrelenting at asking bigger kids to play with her at the playground. Almost always, she talks them into it.
