:: how to please your wife ::

so the weird thing about being a mom to two young kids is that try as you might, you don't get to take nearly enough pictures of all the wonderful things your husband and aforementioned small children are doing for you for mother's day.

i was giving emily her bottle and putting her to bed, for example, when the prep work for this amazing sushi was being done, and while i so so so wanted a picture of all the bits and bites spread out for sushi-rolling time - the plates of mango, cucumber, tuna, salmon, shrimp, cucumber, avocado, and bean sprouts. the thin sheets of nori. the baking sheet piled with sticky rice - i just couldn't get to my camera in time.

good thing it was just my own dinner that had to be delayed to capture these shots.

i hope your mother's day was as wonderful as mine was. i got a lot of work done, had some quiet time just for me while brian took the kiddos to buy sashimi-grade fish for dinner, had brunch with mom and sis and lunch with mom-in-law. it was a pretty darn good day.

if only tomorrow weren't monday. but alas.

oh, and here's evan's sushi. shrimp with cucumber. unfortunately, he wasn't a fan of the sticky rice.

Oh my god. That would have totally made my year to get sushi on mothers day. Sadly I can't eat it right now as I'm pregnant. Maybe next year.
