In other Mother's Day news, I picked up this vintage Mother's Day tea card on ebay recently. I'm sending it out to the spirit of motherhood in all of us. Happy Mother's Day! A special hug to my mom, and to Evelyn & Jack's mom.

Moms and Spiders
My sister (mom of the niece) doesn't like spiders. I'm OK with spiders (I mean, I don't want them to jump on me, but I'm OK with them.) However, I'm not at all fond of snakes. I'm hoping we don't pass on these fears to the niece. To do my part, the last time I was visiting the family, I played with plastic snakes. Not my idea of fun, but an aunt's gotta do what she's gotta do! I'm trying to be a positive role model. In an attempt to help my sister along (hee hee), I recently gave my niece the cutest little book, Miss Spider's Tea Party (Counting Book). It's a story about a spider who wants to hold a tea party. All the bugs are afraid of her, but it has a happy ending. It's also a counting book.
