We had an unexpected and fun twist on this last Mother’s Day weekend (we do our major celebrating on Saturday, usually, to avoid restaurant crowds, delays, and all such things — but it’s still my special day, and I like it like that!).
While we were enjoying a family dim-sum brunch, Red Bear got an invitation to a “play date” with one of his best buddies ever who now goes to a different school. I am a good mom (of course, so I let him go play with his buddy, and suddenly my husband and I had some free time, so we decided to make a quick visit to the famous Descanso Garden, a beautiful public garden not too far away. We had talked about going there often before, but hadn’t made it there yet — partly because it’s hard to get Red Bear excited about strolling around plants, no matter how beautiful! So this was out big chance!
It was a beautiful day with perfect weather, and it was a really nice way to celebrate Mother’s Day for me. Just think about it, moms — no restless 8-year old around, but only beautiful things — and Red Bear thought he got the best of it, because he had a blast with his pal for a few hours. Not bad, right? It was a real win-win Mother’s Day!
In Chinese: 母亲节这天我们过得很不寻常，其实我们一般母亲节都提前一天过，因为想避免餐馆高峰人群什么的。
