It was not an easy day. Momma Peach got stuck at work. Late to leave and very tardy to pick up Evie. Had a laundry list of things to do, a million errands to run before going home. 

Got to Evie's school to pick her up and she was in a dreadful mood.

Evie at 7 AM.
How can you be upset when
you got to wear pajamas to school?
(Really, it was Pajama Day, I promise we weren't too lazy to dress her.)

Evie is always a little tired and very momma-clingy by the end of the week. But today was something else.

WHERE have you been?
I've been waiting all day!

Cue the full blown working-mom-can't-be-a-stay-at-home-mom guilt trip.

Oh, crap.

Nix the long list of errands.  Enter Peterbrooke Chocolatiers at the Forum. 

And tiramisu gelato.

One cup and spoons for two, please!

This is much better than running errands, Momma!

We won't mention that Momma Peach realized (after the fact) that the tiramisu gelato had real Kahlua in it. And that Momma Peach just unknowingly gave Evie her first taste of alcohol (teeny, minuscular trace amounts, but yes).

Fabulous mothering put into practice, I know.

Momma Peach is taking tomorrow off from work, so Evie gets a three day weekend. Just what we both need.


  1. Love the post. Sometimes you just have to make a few modifications to your day when it all turns sour. I'm glad I'm not the only one to take pictures of my crying kid either! :)

  2. Ha! I was wishfully thinking that if I whipped out the cell phone camera, she would stop crying and cheese for the picture. She had other plans though! I can't believe Mr. Art would ever go sour on you though. =oP
