~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~
Every Thursday, here at Like Mother, Like Daughter!
I was proud of myself for remembering to set the table before I went to bed the night before. Pippo obliged by not waking up until after me, so I had a chance to take pictures with everything looking all pretty. I’m glad I did, because of course I didn’t take any more until much later in the day. You’ll have to trust me, though, that our breakfast was delicious. Decadent French toast, bacon and sausage, sweet potato hash, mimosas… Yum.
(Why yes, that is the Easter tie I made him last year, thank you for noticing! He was wicked excited when he saw that he had a tie, just like Dad.)
Opening Day might not have been the reason for the day off from work, but it certainly is a good reason to sit around watching baseball in your pajamas with your son! (Remember, we’re on the West Coast, which means the game started at 10am on Easter Monday. Pajamas aren’t so unreasonable.)
|Running down the hill, looking far more coordinated in this shot than did in real life. But goodness, is he getting big or what?|
Eventually we all got dressed and went to the little playground at the end of our street.
Somehow, Dad is just a little more exciting than Mom when it comes to playgrounds (though I do my best!).
I went upstairs for a few minutes to get dressed on Easter morning, leaving Pippo playing with his new toy truck from his godparents and the Easter baskets safely up on the sideboard. I came back down to both the baskets (and various wrappers and bits of candy) on the floor and a toddler with mouth and hands full of chocolate.
Part of me was proud of him for taking full advantage of that moment — after all, I should have known better! Happy Easter, kiddo.
Field notes from the Lt’s promotion on Tuesday:
1. Schedule important events for a little later in the day whenever possible, so curly hair has a chance to dry properly.
2. When everyone else in the room will be wearing desert cammies, try to find something other than a brown cardigan to go with your cute top.
3. Think of new blog nickname for the Lt.
