Mother's Day Tea

Today I was invited to a Mother's Day Tea at the kids' daycare. Meredith's teacher, the amazing Karen, organized a party where the 8 Monkeys (Meredith's group) invited their moms for tea and entertainment.

The kids have been practising their songs for weeks. They've been preparing snacks for days. They've been growing plants for their moms for who knows how long. I want to know how many extra plants the amazing Karen had to plant to ensure each Monkey had a plant for their mama today!

Anyhow, we got there and lined up to wash our hands (hygiene first....). Then the moms sat at the table while the Monkeys fixed each of us a plate of snacks and a cup of tea.

They were so proud of the 'nests' they had made, and the sugar cookies and the melon balls that looked not so much like a ball!

Next came the entertainment. And how entertaining it was! They had a set of three songs, then they were so pleased with themselves they did the whole set again.

For an intermission, they presented the moms with the special gifts they had made. A beautiful card, a certificate for the World's Best Mom and a fabulous hand made brooch.

What greater gift could a mom get than the love of this child!
