Serving Sarah

You all will be so proud of me - I have totally taken advantage of Leah over the last few days and have forced her to wait on me hand and foot, just as promised. She has been cooking and cleaning like a mad woman, while I have sat back and, well, not cooked or cleaned.

I came home from work and found that Leah had prepared a scrumptious dinner of Honey Nut Cheerios and Minute Rice... Not exactly gourmet eats, but hey, I give her an A++ for effort.

She even did the dishes!! A little extra cleanup was necessary after she accidentally put liquid soap in the dishwasher. But the kitchen floor is spotless now, so I really can't complain...

Once she mastered the art of operating the vacuum cleaner, she did a fab job. The hallway is now as clean as the kitchen floor!

So here's what I did while Leah proceeded to work her little fingers to the bone. We called this concoction a "Mom-osa" (aka orange juice in a margarita glass).

Okay, okay, so you caught us. Maybe some of these images and stories have been exaggerated (or completely fabricated) for sheer entertainment value. But we have had a fun and relaxing week and plan for it to continue tomorrow. I will have a half day of work, with "Girls' Day Out" to follow, which will include lunch, pedicures, and perhaps some shopping. Seriously folks, does it get better than that?

MOMosas! I love it! The trend of eating pretend gourmet meals and almost cooking will continue when I get there. I'm counting the seconds to the visit. I can see I'm going to have to step up my game to keep up with Leah!
I can't concentrate on anything here! Luckily, Tracy is so excited about the impending Alex he hasn't noticed that I have been completely ignoring him!
See ya soon.

Fabricated stories, I don't believe that for a minute, we're talking Leah here. Cleaning, cooking, hey, I know my daughter. But one thing is for sure, and it shows in the pictures, she does everything with a smile and, Sarah looks prettier than ever so I think those Mimosas and the extra rest and company has paid off. Oh yeah Leah, Elle Mae says "Hey"!

Mom are you trying to suck up to me so I will come home and get my dog??? And dont worry Amy, I think theres lots more "fun thing" (aka work) planned for when you get here!!! I managed to grab the easy, lazy shift...sorry ;) I agreed with Sarah that she deserves at least a week of relaxing and nesting, but after being here and seeing baby beds, strollers, car seats, formula, bottles, onesies........COULD YOU HURRY UP ALEX!!!!!???
