This kid is totally my flesh and blood. I loved school too. Like, nerd-level love. Also like me? Good food soothes all wounds.
In the afternoon, Jenny and Beckett came over for a visit. They came bearing gifts which made my little one squeal when she saw the green bag and yellow tissue paper. I squealed when I saw Beckett was wearing a white onesie and robot leg warmers.
Baby Rockne received two adorable outfits, a huge box of diapers and Johnson & Johnson Bedtime lotion and wash. Those purple bottles were some of my favorite things to buy for Madeline when she was a baby. The scent is light and awesome. I immediately lathered my hands with lotion and was filled with the urge to hold a baby.
Back to the gifts. Madeline received her own Tervis. A girl pirate Tervis with a hot pink lid, just like Mama's. She was beyond thrilled. She wanted to drink out of it immediately so I washed it, filled it with ice and water and she slurped like it was full of pumpkin juice.
I even got gifts. The two latest People magazines. One of the best things I can ever receive. Sadly, I already finished both because I have no self-control when it comes to Sun Chips and celebrity photos.
Jenny is an awesome gift-giver. Plus she made an awfully cute baby and I'm just kicking myself that I didn't take any pictures of him.
After dinner, Madeline asked to play Boggle Jr. and, despite my aching back and swollen feet, my heart soared.
