everyfing good to Mudder day

… said the Sniglet this morning. He was translating directly from the German “alles gute zum Muttertag,” as he tends to do when speaking English – it’s definitely his second language. He gave me lots of hugs and a giant hollow chocolate heart, which he’d acquired some days ago and hidden in the attic. Yes, the one with the skylight. Uh-huh, the warmest room in the house, yes, for several sunny, muggy days.

And Ignatz made breakfast-on-the-counter (would’ve been breakfast-in-bed, if he’d gotten up before 11:45) for me: a bowl of cereal, four weird wafer-egg things left over from Easter, a pickle, and a cup of cold tea, all beautifully arranged on a plate. To be honest, I’m kind of glad he didn’t get up in time to bring all that into my bedroom. I should have taken a picture, but I was too busy eating it, sorry.

They are the best kids ever, because my favorite thing is a good laugh, and they manage to supply me with at least one, almost every day.

Happy Mamaday, y’all.

    Everything good to you!

    Were you eating the heart with the spoon, or is that just for sizing purposes? Either way, chocolate is chocolate. đŸ™‚

    No, the spoon was just for scale. The heart did collapse, but was not melted when I opened it. We, being a boy-family, think that is just unutterably cool. (But not so cool that we’re not going to eat it.)

    Happy Mutter Tag to you, too! Last Mother’s Day I was in labour. Kick made me nutmeg and clove-y pancakes and served them with maple syrup and applesauce.
    love ya!
