It's been a busy week. I didn't even have time to write this weeks Book Nook post. It's a shame too, because I had a great St. Patrick's Day book to write about...Maybe next week.
Parker had his first St. Patrick's Day! It was beautiful out! Sunny and warm...the perfect excuse to go outside and take some pictures! Not to brag, but I have a beautiful son! Such a great subject to photograph!
When Daddy got home we went outside again, and even ended up at the park! What a great day!
It was also my oldest's birthday! Shamrock Elizabeth turned 16! (Bet you can't guess why I named her Shamrock!) I can not believe that she's 16 years old. Shamrock has been with me since I was 10 and through so much in my life...I am so lucky to have such a good girl as my sweetie!
We (and by we I mean Michael and Ivy) spent yesterday cleaning out Ivy's garage. (Finishing the garage actually. This has been a 3 weekend project.) Ivy is letting us use his garage for Parker's First Birthday party, and now it actually looks like a place we could throw a party! We're still figuring out the table and chairs and a few other details, but I think it's going to be great!
I hope people RSVP. You see, I am not going to make up goodie bags until people RSVP. I will feel terrible if we have a bunch of kids with no goodie bags, but there are so many kids who are invited that I am not going to spend the money making up all these bags to have 5 people show up! I thought about having some done up as Just In Case bags, but we have kids of so many different ages coming that the bags are going to be a little different depending on who it's for. So...No RSVP = No Bag, and I'll just let the parents explain to their children how their being rude results in their kids getting shorted. OK, so that sounds mean, and I really will try to come up with a solution, but I really think it is rude when people don't take he 5 seconds it takes to RSVP to something. It's not their money, so I guess they don't care, but I am trying to plan a party here.
On another topic, someone has kidnapped my happy baby and replaced him with a grouch. Parker has been so moody the last few days that I am sure I have a stunted teenager in my house. I don't know what is wrong with him, but it's making me sad. It's not helping that I'm starting to wean him too, so he cries, I leak and cry...it's a vicious cycle, but I hope it will be over soon. I'm running out of patience...and breast pads.
Thanks for Reading
