WEDNESDAY - Gampa Amo had his first "potty" experience with a 2 3/4-year-old girl. He did quite well and has been Ava's favorite potty-partner ever since. Insert my sigh of relief at having a few less daily trips to the bathroom with the Princess of "Will I or Won't I Go" here.
THURSDAY - Rice Krispie Eggs were made. They are like Rice Krispie Treats - only shaped like eggs and covered in chocolate, frosting and sprinkles (because regular Rice Krispie Treats are just not sweet (or messy) enough. I realize my parents are "those" Grandparents who delight in hopping the kid up on sugar and then washing their hands of the energy burst that follows. I can't wait to be a grandparent!
We took Ava home. Gave her a nap and then headed over to Gramma and Grampa Terry's for dinner - the girls enjoyed mashed potato beaters . . .. . . my Other Mother's birthday celebration (I won't say how old she is but she's one year short of being eligible for many senior discounts and 11 years away from full social security benefits). Happy Birthday, Mom. I love you . . . . . . and for some egg dipping/glittering/stickering/foiling/smashing/dyeing MADNESS! All the kids (even those of us in our 30s) got involved! Joy's Grandma Timmermeyer (Great Mo Mo) is in town for Easter so we enjoyed seeing her too (and hope to see a lot more of her as the weekend progresses).
