I hope all the mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day.  This year, I desperately wanted to avoid crowds.  After coming out of yet another flu-like episode and with our house in complete shambles due to our major remodeling, I was in no mood to fight crowds.  So I wanted to just take the kids somewhere wide open where they can just run and have fun.  We picked up some good picnic foods and headed over to UCLA.  It was simply amazing.  The campus was quiet and relaxing.  After a wonderful picnic at the Sculpture Garden, we met up with a friend of Mr. BAW who works on campus to catch up with life.  He also showed us around the new hotel in the middle of campus.  It was such a wonderful day.  The only thing I missed weret the squirrels!  We barely saw one squirrel on campus, we were hoping to see a bunch of them.  I suspect that the campus did something to control their population, but I couldn't find anything on the internet about them.  Hm...very strange.  

Lastly, I'd like to share this article about mothers getting sick.  Growing up, I barely remember a time when my mother got sick.  But now I know the truth...she was probably sick much more often than she had let on.  My kids certainly don't see me "sick" too much.  But one night, after lugging our day's dishes up to our second story barthroom to handwash them (we no longer have a kitchen due to our remodeling) while fighting a fever, I crashed onto the couch where the kids were watching a little TV.  Within two minutes, I had to drag myself off the couch again to get the kids ready for bed.  Ahgoo later said to me in the bathroom, "Mommy, I wish they make machines to do things for you so you won't get so tired."  I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time!  Cry because I was so touched that she noticed that I was tired and wanted to make my life easier.  I ended up laughing and telling her that they do make machines to wash our dishes, we just don't currently have one because we don't have a kitchen yet!
