Happy Mother's Day.
The day started ok, but I think there was a feeling that things weren't going to go well. Still Melody is exerting her preference for Mommy over Daddy. When she's in a mood, there's nothing that Roger can do right. Throughout the day there sure were some touch and go moments, but she managed to save the best for last. She took a stand tonight against having a bath and let's say that she had a mother of a tantrum (just for Mother's Day) this evening. Then, to add insult to injury she was very upset that her Rapunzel tattoo had washed off in the bath. Seriously, you don't know how strong this girl is when she's trashing, kicking, screaming, hitting and scratching, it's hard to keep her still. So after literally two hours of fighting with her, she finally managed to go to bed. Not quite the typical day when you think about Mother's Day. Roger did try his best to have a good Mother's Day for Tracey, too bad the kids had other ideas. All in all, between the fights, sibling rivalry and super tantrum, Tracey can surely wait a whole 364 days till the next Mother's Day. Next year, they'll probably eat at home and save all the expense and anguish. Here are some pictures from the brunch at Grouse Mountain.
