Just wanted to say that I am about to crash…kids are down and I should have followed suit a long time ago if I knew what was good for me! Sorry postings were slow last week..my son turned 6 last week and it was a busy time. It was the first year I felt like he actually had expectations for his birthday(and quite particular ones I might add). I miss the Thomas the Tank Engine days sometimes. Things were so simple and straightforward then. We did Thomas parties for his 2nd and 3rd birthday parties! Now, of course, he thinks Thomas is boring. So much for all the money we invested in Thomas paraphenalia! Anyway, I had to make a very long excursion to the nearest ToysRUs to get the Shake and Go Speedway by Fisher Price and since I hadn’t been in a ToysRUs in years (I love internet shopping) I was totally overwhelmed. I had to make an emergency call to my husband and have him talk me through exiting the store! They had a gigantic Barbie section full of amazing things! I wanted the Barbie playtent with a light-up chandelier for my daughter who is about to turn 2. It was getting BAD! Luckily I got out with just the gift for my son, but I was exhausted! 🙂 Anyway, my parents provided him with great birthday fun after camp on his actual birthday and a few days later we had his party with his friends. Back to normal now hopefully…But when you are a mom there is never really a normal, is there?
