I celebrated Mother's Day last night with an impromptu get together with all my kids and grandkids! A gathering of that sort has become a rarity lately, so I always count it as a gift when we are able to get together and celebrate us.
I just love the smiles on these faces!
And what better way for a girl to chase the blues away than a shopping trip. From our return to the airport with two little ones in tow and a couple of
bribes promises, we spent a fair amount of time in JoAnn's. Then it was off to the pet store where we acquired a new frog named 'jumpie'. The frog was a compromise because apparently our aquarium is to small to accommodate a 'sucker fish'. All I wanted was a solution to all the green growing on the sides of our aquarium and I thought a 'sucker fish' would be just the thing. When I told the clerk at the pet store that, she suggested a green mossy type plant that she claimed would do the trick. The last time I bought a live plant I ended up with a couple of very prolific snails! Well, I could see disappointment written all over a certain four year old boy's face. A green glob of moss that just sits at the bottom and does absolutely nothing isn't nearly as exciting as a 'sucker fish' . . . . but a FROG is way more exciting than a 'sucker fish'. Especially a frog that eats frozen blood worms every other day. Did you know that you have to sign a paper when you buy a frog? With two little ones taking off in opposite directions, I have no idea what I signed or why I needed to sign it. Hmmmm. Green being my least favorite color . . . I sure am hoping this pompom looking glob of moss does its magic. If so, I'm going back to buy a truck load for our pool!
