My Tree

For Mother's Day, I had my flowers from Austin on my nightstand and a plant Jake made me at school right next to it. When I picked up Miah from nursery on Sunday he was soooo excited he could barely speak clear when he gave me THIS present to add to my potted collection. He said he made it all by himself and planted the seeds a few weeks back. If you ask him what he got me, he'll tell you, "a tree!!!" He also gave me a beautiful picture he colored and then at the bottom was written his name by the teacher, "Maya". UUGHHH, he's not a girl, how many time do I have to tell them they spell it WRONG?!?!

My sweet Kora has been on her devil meds (steroids) for a full day now and she's still being sweet so hopefully we can slip by without the demon entering her body. She's also been using some Benadryl to keep the itching to a minimum. Of course that makes her pass out by 1pm. I took a picture of her gorgeous sleeping face. OH how I wish I looked that beautiful as I slept. In the morning when she is trying to get up and she's halfway between sleep and awake, Miah will pat her back and say softly, "good morning princess beauty!!" Depending on the morning, she either HATES it, or LOVES it. She's definitely a girl!

See the difference one day makes with the meds? This bottom picture was taken just 24 hours earlier and, as you can see, her face looks much worse. She's fully awake in this picture but she's just being goofy and making a weird face because she's Kora.

Such a sweet face! and I love kid's trees, they are the best trees in the world. And bouquets of weeds.....oops, I mean FLOWERS, are also the best.

They can't spell Cate's name either. I'm glad Kora's face is better. Doesn't look like fun.

All I have to say is, don't let Maya, Myah, uh, oh, Miah's tree die. Roman gave me a something or other not to long ago (picked out with his grandma). I've let it die, well, all but a few green shoots from the bottom. Randomly throughout any given day, he'll ask me why I let it die. Worst mom of the year award, right here.

Back to Miah's name. Have his teachers been watching the History Channel and learning about the Mayans? Or, are they addicted to Maya and Miquel? Obviously not very intuitive considering Maya, as you stated, is the girl in the show. When's the last time you saw Jeremiah spelled Jeremyah? Enough said.

aww. Miah seems like such a sweet, tender little man. I love what he says to Kora. That is the cutest thing ever. Has he heard that somewhere, or did he come up w/ that on his own? And I love that Kora is all girl and either hates it or love it. I can completely relate. Oh, and the "tree" is really so stinkin' cute. I can't wait to get weeds and trees. They make me smile.
