My Mother's Day

Kelly made me a nice breakfast and gave me a hand molding kit to make a keepsake of the kid's hands. He was going to have it done before giving it to me, but when he saw how complex it was he thought we should do it together. (Not sure a two year old can hold his hand still for a whole minute without lots of help :) We then decided to go to a local put golf and game place. We played a few arcade games - at this stage you don't have to put money in the machines for Jonah. He thinks he's playing when the previews are one. We played a game of golf; Jonah even tried a couple of holes. Then we rode the go carts. Jonah loved this part. Jonah just made the 36" required to ride as passenger. I had a buy one get one free coupon, so Kelly and I took turns chauffeuring Jonah around the track.

This probably sounds cheesy, but as I was watching Kelly and Jonah go around the race track, I got all teary eyed. Not sure why. But it reminds me that earlier in the week I was mourning the fact that he isn't a baby anymore (and thinking Elisabeth will not be one very long), but this was a glimpse of all the fun times we can have with him now and as he gets older.

Afterwards, we went out to dinner and as I write this we're trying to get Jonah in bed early so we can watch "The Day the Earth Stood Still." Now if we can just get him to stand still.

Happy Mother's Day everyone!
