Wow, I'm blogging!
Why does this surprise me?
Well, for one thing, we have 5 kids here today.
For another, we're having a party at 4:30 today.
What happened to me? I used to stress over the birthday parties to the point of mental and emotional breakdown! Today, I am calm, collected, and relaxed! I think in my 5 years of party planning, I have mellowed a bit. I also contribute my oddly relaxed state to better organizational skills.
I'm excited about the party. Austin turned one year old on Friday, and I've been looking forward to celebrating that! I can't wait to help him open his presents and place his "Tire" cake in front of him! I love first birthdays! It is bittersweet though. My last 1st birthday. Well, at least until I'm a grammie!
OK, so seriously, it is oddly calm here.
Baron and Ellie are watching Charlotte's Web.
Tessa and Annie are playing quietly.
Austin is asleep.
The cakes are made.
We're ordering pizza.
The house is clean.
The laundry is caught up.
The dishes are caught up.
I look pretty good.
All on the day of MY CHILD'S birthday party.
With hours to go.
This is a weird, weird feeling.
Maybe I oughtta go knock on some wood.
