I spent Mother’s Day morning in bed, listening to the sounds of Andy and Sophie making me pancakes from scratch. My favorite phrases? From Sophie: “Uh oh” (several times) and “Daddy, can I have a towel? I made a mess.” From Andy: “Let’s not sneeze in the pancakes, OK?” (They were the best pancakes I’ve ever had.)
I got three cards: One from Andy, one from Sophie and one from the babies-to-be. And a fantastic present—a swing for our backyard.
We drove up to my parents’ house for a delicious lunch, which my dad made.
It was a perfect day (thanks, Drew).
