Cakes and Tea

Cranberry Cake from here

"Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first." ~ Ernestine Ulmer

This morning Mia and I were reading the fairytale classic Little Red Riding Hood. At the end of the story {after the poor big bad wolf's timely decimation} the woodcutter, little Red, and Gran all sit down for cakes and tea. In the illustration, there are beautiful little pink cakes and little floral tea cups. Mia's comment every time is, "Hey, we could do that."

So this afternoon, Mia and I went to a local French cafe and had "cakes and tea." It was more like fruit tarts and coffee, but that's no reason for complaint! After that, we went to a boutique next door that had sparkly necklaces, costume jewelry, and other "princess things."

It's a small but special memory that I hope Mia remembers. Is there a special activity you have recently shared with your child {or younger sibling}? Hope your Monday is off to a good start!

The lovely mask was photographed by the talented Haley Johnson.


Marley's Momma said...

That sounds delightful! I am looking forward to sharing special moments like that with Marley when she gets a little older! Our most "special" moment of late...I kissed her as I do a million times a day, and she leaned in, mouth wide open, and gave me a kiss back! Melts your heart to see those first little signs of affection!

Happy Monday!

So sweet! Thank for sharing your mommy moment!

Anyone have anything they have done with their son that was special? The girlie stuff is easier for me; the boy stuff, not as much... :)

what a fun little time for the two of you! i took lola for her first real pedicure on saturday, they even had special little pedi chairs for girls like her!

kyan loves to go to the movies, especially ones in 3d and at the imax, i swear he is just like his daddy! so, any chance we get to have a little date with him - either my husband or i - will take him to go see something special!

Just today actually, my eldest son and I took part in our local farmer's market. He and I rarely get to do things 'alone' and this was a special time! It wasn't fancy, it wasn't grand, but it was fun, and it was us. I loved it.
