Today was Little Man’s birthday party. I got the house all decorated and braced myself for 22 people in my house as they were calling for rain and thunderstorms. It was pretty cloudy outside and didn’t look too hopeful. The party started at 1 and it wasn’t raining yet so we moved the party outside which sadly had no decorations. Little Man got his present from us as soon as we got outside. A battery powered jeep which he loves. He was taking the ladies for rides on it the whole time. Did I mention he is only turning 3 and is already all about the ladies. Actually he always has been. We got videos of him staring down the ladies when he was around 8 months old.
So we did the hot dog thing and let the kids play for a bit in the sandbox or at the park which is practically in the back yard. Was actually quite relaxing and nice to not be in the house we no space to play. Then it was CAKE TIME! Who doesn’t like cake? It was pretty windy though and the candles wouldn’t stay lit so being the clever mommy I am I had him blow out the lighter. Oh yeah mommy is a genius.
Of course I took his name off the cake. Would you really think I would leave it on? OK I will be honest. I almost put the picture up with the name on it as I wasn’t thinking. What? It’s been a long day. Anyways he loved his cake and he loved his presents. The day was filled with family and friends that I consider family. I could not have asked for anything more for today. It really was a wonderful day. I can’t believe my baby is turning 3. I know everyone says “it seems like just yesterday he was born” but it is so very true. I am sure all you mothers can agree with me.
Oh yeah about the rain. Just as we started coming in to open up presents is when it started to rain. Perfect timing.
I am now off to relax. We have another busy day ahead of us tomorrow. Is it next week-end yet?
