Snacker and a napper

I asked my daughter what she wanted to be when she grew up. Her answer was sweet on the surface, "Like you mummy." Awwww!!!! Right? Except that I asked her what she thought I was. She said, "You are a mummy." I prodded a little more, "What do you think mummy does when she goes to work?" Her response whilst not flattering was probably quite accurate. "You are a snacker and napper!" She got me, so I have to come out and admit it. I do love a snack and I do often take naps on the weekends. Eye-opening to see myself through her sparkly little eyes.

We had a very social weekend. We had some new friends over for dinner. We met them through school. Their son and my son are good friends and they also have a little girl who is six months younger than my daughter, so instant playmates! We went to their house last month. The dad is an amazing chef. He made this amazing pasta which just had layers and layers of flavor. Also he made his own croutons. They were so crispy and soft at the same time. I will never love readymade croutons again. My mouth still waters just remembering that meal!

At our house the meal was desi in nature, shrimp curry being the main attraction. After dinner our two girls came to show us what they had been busy doing - they had bedazzled their faces with some jeweled stickers.

The next afternoon my daughter had a play date with her favorite friend from school.

The girls had lots of fun playing together and I really enjoyed getting to know her mother. Yay! A new friend for me too!
