3:00 PM: Happy Mother's Day! It's been a beautiful day today. The girls have been very well-behaved all day (so far), and the weather is gorgeous. We had breakfast together this morning, and Randall let me open the gifts he bought for me--a necklace and pair of earrings. Yesterday, Elisabeth gave me her gifts--several drawings, a flowering plant (with a pot she decorated), and a card with a flowerpot on the front. Inside the flowerpot are four flowers, and on the inside was written: "Pick a flower and you will see--The jobs you can expect from me. I'll do them all without a bother--because I love you so much mother." There were four flowers in the flowerpot, and Elisabeth had written the following jobs on the stems:
- I will give medicine in Sophie's tail
- I will carry her to the bathroom
- Clean Sophie up
- Play with her nicely
I like that last one the best! I thought it was interesting that all the items were about Sophie and that she hadn't picked more household chores. It just shows how focused we all are on Sophie lately, I suppose. Sophie has continued to do well today with potty training. She still hasn't woken up from her nap, but she made it through her nap yesterday without an accident, and we have our fingers crossed for today.
Dawn is coming over in about an hour to watch the girls while Randall and I go out to dinner. He mentioned possibly going to Durham to do a little shopping before dinner. It's been a while since we've had a chance to go out on a "date," and we've really been looking forward to it.
