My mom had knee replacement surgery this week and is spending the next few days in the hospital. It's funny how much Poppy remembers about when I was in the hospital having Sam. As soon as I told her where Uma was having her knee "fixed", Poppy asked if I remembered when she brought me dinner and a cookie at the hospital, and a stuffed animal for Sam. I was relieved that she doesn't seem to think of the hospital as a scary place.
We made these bright and cheery "feel better soon" cookies yesterday. (don't ask - I don't know why I'm all about the cookies lately. Last night as I was finishing up frosting these after Poppy went to bed, I told Marc that I find it relaxing. Weird.)
And Poppy was very determined to get a book for Uma, because she's going to have a lot of time on her hands in the next few weeks. She really thought Uma would want a Thomas book, or a Clifford book, but I was able to talk her into an adult novel.
I really love you. Can you come over again? Are you going to like these cookies I made for you?
So tonight we're bringing up dinner and our little care package. Poppy is very excited about the adventure of going to the hospital for a visit!
