Mother's Day


It was another year of BSD being away on Mother's Day. And the ballerinas stepping up to the plate. They served me breakfast in bed. And for the first year ever my toast was actually toasted! *woot*

I spent the afternoon helping at the Big Ballerina's ballet performance at a retirement home. I got a little choked up walking into the building. Thinking how sweet it is for these girls to do this. And how much BB loves dancing for this audience. Made me think of my mom. So I told BB these were all her grandmas today. It made my heart swell when the girls were done. And they rushed out of the dressing room. "To socialize" with the audience.

In the evening we ate sushi on the beach. And BB danced.

 This time....

For her real grandma.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
