The award for Best Performance goes to... Big Cookie

I'm usually the one behind the camera, but I wanted a yearly Mother's Day photo despite my hair being pulled back and messy.  The kids wanted their dolls in the photo, too.  Well, they're really Wavey's dolls, but Griffin doesn't like to be left out so he grabbed an undressed doll which you can see I'm trying to push it down as low as possible. Wavey was pleased that the doll on the left she calls "Baby Doody" (I swear, the naming was all her idea) made a photo appearance.

In the morning, this was the sign that greeted me as I approached a made-by-kids pancake breakfast:
It cracks me up how Lil' Rascals-ish the sign is.

After breakfast, I took Wavey to her first live performance play showing "The Velveteen Rabbit." When I asked later what her favorite part of the show was, she said, "When it was break time in the middle [intermission] and we went outside and ate a big cookie."

At least she remembered something.


PS: One of my favorite shops Tiny Sprouts is hosting a $75 gift certificate giveaway in honor of Mother's Day.  Check it out!

Nice pic! I see Baby Doody made the appearance, but what ever happened to her friend Baby Trudy? Doody and Trudy, I believe was the original duo.
