Mother’s Day Tea | Mommy and Me Monday | 168th ed.


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

This week, I had the privilege of attending a Mother’s Day Tea at N’s school. She had spent weeks on Mother’s Day crafts, and songs prepared especially for us. It was most definitely a treat.

Mother's Day Tea

I had never been to a Mother’s Day event and it was super fancy. I’m glad I decided to change into a dress last minute (although you can’t tell from the picture). I even inspired me to come up with a list of 5 easy and inexpensive ways to make mom happy.

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

**Congrats to Grammy Staffy, lucky #17 for being the winner!**

  1. Natalie did a fabulous job on your hat! I like the bright colors and the big sunflower in the front.
    I got mom a really neat gift at Kroger of all places. It’s a glass top side table to use outside with a hummingbird on it…it looks kind of like stained glass. It was rather inexpensive, and I hope to get her a plant I like to go on top of it.

    1. Turns out? The teacher made the hat….ugh. Why can’t the kids make less than perfect stuff? Drives me crazy!

    1. Thank you! Sometimes I luck out. She’s into very awkward smiles lately.

  2. Ya’ll are beautiful! 🙂 I especially like the bit hat – spring colors and big hats are ALWAYS appropriate for a mother daughter tea!! 🙂 I’d love to take the big girls to tea one day in Woodstock – complete with dress up clothes at the restaurant!

      1. Yeah, it’s hard to give the older kids when there’s a baby around! I have trouble with 2, I can only imagine how it is with 3.

  4. I loved seeing the moms leaving with their Mother’s Day treats… I had a necklace, a picture frame and more 😉
