When I was done eating (I shared as much as I could with them, but they watched while I ate every singe bite), Chase asked me what my chores are because they were going to do them for me today. It was almost too sweet to take advantage of, but then I thought that I wasn't likely to get an offer like that again, so I put them to work.
After that exotic brunch, I was a little concerned when Charles told me there was turtle cheesecake for dessert, but thankfully no real turtles were harmed in the making of my dessert.
There was even entertainment: Jane sent me a mother's day card that plays Cyndi Lauper "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" when you open it, and Chase and Cole thought it was the funniest thing they had ever seen. They danced and sang along all day (I'm amazed the batteries in the card didn't run out), and I think that my two boys dancing around the living room and singing their hearts out to Girls Just Wanna Have Fun is the funniest thing I've ever seen.
You've really got to love the days when you think at the end of the day "Gosh -- these are really great kids," rather than "Gosh -- I wonder if there's a circus out there that would take these kids." Today was definitely not a circus day, although the circus might have been interested in the Cyndi Lauper bit...
