Baby Shower

Last weekend B went to her LCC's baby shower and monthly au pair meeting. A little over a month ago, S and her husband adopted F, an absolutely adorable little boy. When the invite came for the shower B was a little confused. She had never been to a baby shower before and the word "shower" to her (and most people) means to clean yourself in the bathtub. So you can understand the confusion. I explained to her that in America people have parties to celebrate the coming of a new baby. I told her that they call it a shower because you "shower" the parents and baby with gifts. Not sure if she totally understood the use of the word but she got the idea and had a lot of fun at the shower. B loves babies and F is a hard one not to love. He has the most pinch-able cheeks!

As you know, B loves taking photos of food

B and her boss

Easter weekend

It was B's first time celebrating Easter. I had a hard time trying to explain to her what Easter was as it's become quite commercialized with the Easter bunny. We are not religious people but still celebrate with our families. She finally understood what it was after my mom asked if she celebrates Easter in Thailand and I had to explain to her that she's Buddist so they don't celebrate Easter. That was B's "a-ha" moment where she related it to Christianity. Friday night she went out with her "friend" B (I say he's her "boyfriend" but she says he's only "friend to be boy" which I believe she means he is just a boy who is her friend but for only a friend they spend an awful lot of time together!) to a party. Saturday she came with me to visit my family in Rochester and Sunday she came with us to visit T's family here in the cities. It was a nice weekend. We always enjoy spending time with our families and wish we could see them more often.
