on mother's day, we decided to have a "ma spa" for nana.
it was a grand-ma spa!
first nana soaked her feet in some warm water and then anna jean rubbed her feet with lotion.
then anna did nana's makeup and painted her fingernails and toenails.
(am i losing you with all the nana, anna, anna, nana talk? stay with me)
why yes, i do have a ridiculous amount of nail polish.
and i barely ever paint my nails.
i'm a dork like that.
then josh interviewed nana.
he asked her what her favorite movie, flower, food, book...was.
he recorded her answers so he would always know.
then he read her a poem that he wrote her earlier in the day.
the poem wasn't about flowers or sunshine or love.
it was about worms and how he is better than anna and how he likes to go fishing (i think?!).
he's a mess.
but he's a funny mess.
i could barely snap these pics i was laughing so hard.
then anna sang nana a song she wrote just for her and we served her special nana snacks.
kind of like scooby snacks but much, much better.
especially those petit fours.
i wanted to eat all the chocolate ones.
it was such a special afternoon.
the kids were proud to make it all about their nana.
and i was happy to keep it low key but meaningful.
i hope she loved it as much as i did.
your makeup looked fab, nan!
i've written many, many times about how close my mom and i are.
she is a nut.
and i love her so much.
so do the kids--she is a wonderful grandmother!
mom's day rocks.
why don't we have mom's day every month?
sign me up.
