He Should Be Thanking Me

BP and I are exceedingly polite people. We are full of pleases and thank-yous and this courtesy extends to each other as well as people with whom we’re less familiar. We think it is very important in a marriage to treat each other with the utmost consideration and we (usually) do. However, I think I went a little overboard last night. We had just finished having sex, and as BP rolled off me I said, absent-mindedly, cheerfully, “thanks dear”.

Crazymumma, Marla and Penelope and their gals came over for a playdate yesterday afternoon. Crazymumma’s sweet girls did a wonderful job entertaining the little ones. They took great pleasure in dressing up Cakes, who submitted to their ministrations with delight:



Later, Bee enjoyed the same treatment:



We had a really good time and must do it again soon. I think the Toronto gals are due for another cocktail evening as well. Who’s up for it?

Saturday night we ordered Thai and watched a few episodes of Grey’s Anatomy. This is becoming one of my favourite ways to spend an evening (God I’m getting old).

This morning our friends across the street joined us for a mommy and daddy playdate. Cakes and G are both very strong-willed girls. They used to clash a little bit but they’ve been enjoying frequent dates and they’ve reached some sort of agreement. Cakes actually hugged and kissed G (I was so jealous):



Alas, the love didn’t last. Cakes took advantage of G’s surprise to bring on some wrestling manoeuvres:




Oh well. At least they’re evenly matched.

There was a piece in Saturday’s Globe about a cool mom-run business. Boomi's Beads makes fun, fashionable medic-alert bracelets for kids. Toronto mom Sid Kroach came up with the idea after battling with four-year-old son Griffin, diagnosed with juvenile diabetes, to wear the standard-issue bracelet. They offer up to 70 different styles of bracelets, shoe tags and zipper pulls.

You can order here. A portion of revenues is donated to charity.

I think that was one of my fave parts of the playdate when they dressed her up. She is such a delight!

The 'thank you dear' is a classic been together forever couple moment.

Thank You Dear? You crack me up!

I'm totally up for a cocktail night Metro Mama :)

And could Cakes be any cuter? I don't think so.

Definitely up for cocktails or some other gathering! I am in need of something fun these days.

But perhaps no wrestling moves... I'm not sure I could hold my own against that kid of yours!

Cakes and Bee are adorable! Crazymumma's girls are stylists in the making.

Not to come off sounding pathetic, but I seriously need a night out with plenty of drinks.

I would definitely be in to a Cocktail Soirée!

On a side note, I did a couple of shows with Sid Kroach back in Hamilton. We've since lost touch, but I am definitely going to check out the bracelets!

Lemme know when and where, and let's party...!

Oy! The kids are adorable!

I'm exceedingly polite, too. I can't say I've ever thanked my hubby after sex, though! Ha! Too funny! :)

The pictures of the girls wrestling cracks me up! That will be an even funnier pic when the girls end up being best friends and are in each other's weddings.

Sounds like you and Cakes have been having some nice relaxing social engagements. So nice!
