Tea Party

Today my girls and I are going to my friend Laura's famous annual mother-daughter tea party. Every spring I marvel at how lucky we are to know Laura, and to be invited. She's amazing, as is the party. She cooks for days and makes impressive things like towering coconut layer cakes (which Genevieve, in her confusion about words, calls "mushroom cake").

Do you remember the first mother-daughter tea party, though? Do you? It was in May, the spring that Julia and Genevieve were almost-three and nine months old. Before we left, my toddler locked me outside on the patio, with she and the (crawling) baby inside alone. That was a little, um, alarming.

Let's hope today is a little less eventful.
