More Happy

It's been such a busy week that I'm almost glad it's over. It was pretty wonderful though. Ballet is finished for the year, and the Princess' recital was very sweet. My MIL came with us, and spent the night, and I managed to make homemade pizza and cupcakes for dinner since her birthday was the next day. (I also had to change sheets, wash the floor, and pick up wine - she doesn't drink, but Hubs and I find her hard to take without alcohol.)

Also the next day was the Princess' class trip to Puck's Farm. I dropped Bad off for an extra day at the sitter so that I could go along. Farms aren't really my thing, (My dad constantly shakes his head at my squeamish, girlie ways. "I can't believe you grew up on a farm!" he moans) but I'm glad I went.

The Princess rides a pony!

The farm I grew up on didn't have kiddie rides!

The Princess milks a cow! Guess which mommy DIDN'T want a turn. After years of nursing I just felt too much empathy for poor Bessie.

The best bit was that the Princess wanted me with her. She walked beside me and held my hand. She made sure to sit with me for lunch. Some of the other kids were already acting 'too cool' to hang out with their mothers. I'm so glad I made the effort to go on a trip while she still loves me best.

Happy Weekend Everyone!

That all looks like so much fun. I love her little ballet costume.

It is bittersweet the way they keep getting bigger and all, isn't it? It looks like a lovely day, although I am with you on the milking thing. I wouldn't inflict it on her. Oh and well done with the MIL. Wine is necessary where MIL's are concerned.

Sounds like a busy but great week!

I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

Sweet ballerinas! I always wanted to be a dancer. Alas, weak ankles and a mom that refused all frivolous things. (With that story, I'm surprised I didn't end up as a stripper to pay her back for that!)

Okay, so she must not read your blog lol and how awesome is it that you admit that. I'm afraid to drink when my mil is here. What if I say something?! Yikes!

Your princess is...lovely! I love watching them dance. I cry every time. Our big recital is the 6th and I can't wait.

She looks so lovely in her tutu, and so happy on the farm. Best of both worlds!
