Mother's Day Tea

Sojo's teacher is so into celebrating them and others that even we parents are reaping the benefits. She organized a Mother's Day tea yesterday where we were escorted into the room by our child and sat at a table filled with cards and gifts.



Sojo's job was to serve me. It was adorable and hilarious at the same time as you could easily tell that almost none of the kids had ever actually made a cup of tea for anyone. The lady next to me wound up being served a cup of cold milk with a tea bag thrown in by her son. Sojo did pretty well and remembered that I drink my tea super sweet. We also had donuts. Then, when she was done and still wanted more to do, she convinced me I needed a coffee now. And another donut.

In true Sojo style, I had asked her in the morning if she was excited about the day. Her reply was no. When I probed at to why not, it had to do with the fact that she had to serve me. She is nothing if not honest. After the tea, we debriefed and she admitted that she did like serving me. I could tell the whole time as she was a total lovebug that day.

How totally sweet...that girl of yours is so sweet. I think the no excitement was because she was not sure how it was going to work. You may be in for tea more often Mama. Love to you both...
