Mama Monday #21.1

Theme: May

Okay. Enough with the sadness, death, and sacrifice. It's springtime, people! Let's get on with the newness, rebirth, sunshine and warmth.

The month of May (my favorite!) doesn't start until later this week, but that didn't stop the private school near our home from hosting May Day activities this past weekend.

Hubby suggested we go, and boy was it an experience! What a fun way to spend a truly beautiful spring day.

Here's Sweetie and I listening to some songs.


And we witnessed the spring play, with the Winter King and Queen trying to take over the season.


And then, of course, there was the May Pole Dance...


...with its beautiful finished product


It really was such a treat.

How lucky we are to live in such a beautiful state and share the gorgeous new season with members of our community.


Speaking of community and the spring....

With the weather being as nice as it has been lately, last Monday Sweetie and I were able to go outside and enjoy the day. So nice after feeling cooped up inside all winter long!

While outside that day, we met our new neighbors (well, new-ish. They've been there since November! Like I said, it was a bad winter). Particularly, Sweetie met their 4-year old daughter. They became fast friends, playing together for about an hour and even sharing a picnic lunch.

Turns out this is a large family with 5 daughters, a few of which are 'round about Sweetie's age. Now Sweetie's always looking out our window, seeing if "the girls" are outside, and asking if she may go play with them.


Lastly, getting back to the newness and rebirth of the season....

Look at our little Sweetie now


Yep, she finally lost that tooth! I mean, she literally lost it - either spitting it out and having it fall down the drain, or possibly swallowing it - we're not quite sure.

No problem. We just wrote a note to the Tooth Fairy explaining what happened. Apparently, she was very understanding, as she gifted Sweetie with this -


A gorgeous Tooth Fairy Bracelet.

What a lucky girl.

Happy spring, everyone. May you have a beautiful May... and beyond!
