Happy Mother’s Day!

P.Pie’s very first Mother’s Day.

After all she’s been through, she deserves 365 days all her own. Since there’s only one, I’d better make it special. And while I was at it, I’d better do a little something for The Squeaker… after all, she’s the reason P.Pie’s a mom.

So, the first order of the day was breakfast in bed.

For P.Pie – an omelet with sautéed onions & mushrooms, topped with melted chipotle cheddar cheese and fresh diced roma tomatoes with piping hot coffee.

For The Squeaker – Freshly warmed breast milk in a bottle (I was going to add a dash of nutmeg for flavor but P.Pie said ‘No’. Something about being bad for her. Party pooper).

Next on the docket, the present.

I’m a lucky guy. P.Pie really likes functional gifts. She’d be just as happy with a new vacuum as she would with earrings. Okay, that’s not completely true. But she really does like functional gifts…

But I did not get her a functional gift. I got her a new Sony Ericsson phone that also doubles as a Walkman player. Very cool.

We then caught an early dinner/late lunch at our favorite bistro downtown.

Now, The Squeaker is bathed, fed and sleeping. And so is P.Pie.

I think everyone is happy.
