So, since I had my babies in Mexico and currently reside in Mexico, I get to celebrate Mother’s Day twice. Um, awesome.
Lila’s been talking about a “surprise” for me for at least 3 weeks now. The surprise is a dance at school and she’s come home everyday and told me about it. I’d ask her to show me a bit of it, and she’d kick her leg out forward… once and tell me, “That for you!”
As it turns out, that one leg kick was quite telling of the actual, finished Mother’s Day dance.
More on that in a minute.
First, let’s take a look at my daughters hugging one another this morning before Lila’s Dia da la mama’s festival.
Next, let’s take a look at this ridiculously cute outfit that I made. (As if. I did not make this outfit. A friend of a friend made this outfit and I paid for it.)
Traditional Mexican skirt, apron and vest.
P.S. The vest is velour. ROCK ON. I plan on dressing her up as Joan Jett for Halloween this year. Score.
And, those shoes and socks? They’re all Lila. Hey – what can she say? They make her jump higher! (“Lila, your shoes are tight, you’re going to need some new ones. Her: “You will buy me same shoes again, right?” Absolutely. Hello my little creature of habit.)
She slowly warmed up.
Um. I know. SO cute.
This is Lila’s friend, Nico.
Next, the dance:
And pics from the dance.
Finally, when it was over – this little sweetie found some rose petals and brought them to me. Sweet girl.
Um, I love her. She was so proud.
And when it was all over with, the children find their Mommies in the crowd and bring them a gift. Mine was a little plaster square with her hand print on it.
GREAT day. I’ve never enjoyed a little program more. So sweet.
I really love being a Mom.
P.S. Big thank you to mi amiga Dulce for taking so many of these photos! xo.
