I am head over heels in love with the gingham trend happening right now. I have gingham pants (like the ones pictured-under 30 bucks at Target right now), a gingham off the shoulder top, the baby has a gingham bathing suit and I want MORE (like that BAG HELLO?!).

I recently saw a great piece on Cup of Jo about kids calling adults by their first names, and it got me thinking…what do my kids call their friends’ moms and dads? What do their friends call me? What should they be calling other parents?
Mother’s Day weekend! It was a little rainy, I still did laundry, but I got breakfast in bed and got to spend the entire weekend with my crew, so it was a win. Brunch at The Clubhouse at McGregor was perfect (except for when Talley wandered away and started eating french fries right from the buffet tray **SORRY**), and we even sorta got a family photo in! My oldest got to be the mascot at his school’s fundraiser basketball game, the three chicks all got to dance together, and we somehow made it to all of the sports. I hope you guys had a great Mother’s Day weekend…
As I write this blog post to you guys, I am eating peanut butter straight out of the jar for “lunch” and am drinking a full cup of cold coffee. Not iced coffee, mind you, this was hot about, oh, four hours ago. It is almost 3pm, and I have gotten about 30% of my “to do” list done, and that’s a lot for me. And so I decided that today, of all days, with Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, I should write about balance. And how it is total, and utter crap.
This weekend was all about the toddlers. From dance class to a Derby party where I think the kids outnumbered the parents, the small squad and I were tight. I loved meeting so many of you at the Mini City Meetups, and so did Welles. I think the highlight of the weekend had to be those Tahini Dark Chocolate cookies from The Chocolate Spoon at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market. Oh, my GOD. So good. I ate three (because I bought all that she had left).
Jack’s highlight definitely was winning a Shirley Temple at the kids golf clinic at McGregor on Sunday, extra cherries.
