A jug of wine, a loaf of bread and.... the cone of silence?

Matt made me a Mother's Day card in class this week. He brought it home today and clutching it like a winning lottery ticket, he couldn't take his eyes off of it for the entire drive home from school. After about ten minutes he picked up his head from his masterpiece...

Matt: what color wine do you like?

Me: Red! as if he had a bottle in his bag to offer me... I mean I like red OR white I suddenly felt bad that maybe Matt had drawn white wine and I didn't want him to think that he had disappointed me in any way.... although that really shouldn't have been my main concern given that the other kids in the class probably drew things like flowers and perfume and jewelry and my kid picked alcohol but at least he seemed to know me, right?

Matt: Oh well, I thought you liked grey!

I can't wait for Sunday and my grey wine (or maybe it's Grey Goose and the kid is way more astute than I give him credit for).

Happy Mother's Day!

The nicest glass of grey wine ever. The skating rink, however, remains in mid mess. I'm hoping it's resolved by father's day.
