Mothering during a pandemic

I read somewhere that a mom was looking for a yard sign to congratulate her toddler for a toilet training.

Lady, I got you covered.

Meanwhile Darla and I picked up lunch at the world famous Derby in Arcadia California. We had bacon-wrapped filet mignon and string beans which she loves. We took the bottle of wine and dropped it off at my aunt Joan’s house because she is also my godmother. And then I mostly slept for the rest of the day.

Happy Mother’s Day to you and to all of the mothers out there.

School from Home

Darla is meeting with her class and teachers via ZOOM.

I am watching from the office. She moves too much and of course, insists on taking the call from my room which is not lovely (at the moment). zoooooom

This is so surreal. We are reinventing education as we go. I am so thankful to  Ms. Walker and Fenton Charter schools.

I might be even more thankful if Darla would stop trying to hold her cats up and have them join class!
