a spot of tea
emma and i had a little tea party before torrey woke up this morning. it was the last day of their midwinter break, so torrey was really looking forward to her sleeping in time. emma, on the other hand, wakes up earlier and generally in a better mood. so this morning after some snuggling time, we decided to have a spot of tea. she made chai tea in her little tea set we got her for christmas. i found it this past summer at an antique store, and it's handmade. it was just one of those things that screamed her name when i saw it. :)
some days i really miss those mornings of yesteryear. you know, the ones from before the kids were in school and we had lots of time for these little moments. it seems like there is less and less time for them as the years go on. so i guess you do the only thing you can as a mom... relish each one of these moments when they come because all you've got is that moment to cherish it.
after torrey got up, we ran some errands to pick up a few things we needed for our vacation next week to... disneyland!!!
