Oh my goodness did we have a party here yesterday! It was 10:30 last night before I felt like I might ever be cool again and one thing I decided is if P. and I decide to have another baby, we’re shooting for a winter birthday.
I really wanted to have Caroline’s party at home this year. Like Franc says in Father Of The Bride, “I just love zee weddings at home, they’re very cozy, very warm, very faboolous.” I realize it was a birthday party, but you get my point.
So we set up some pools, a Little Tykes bouncer, and a bunch of balls. Add in some puffed cheetos and cupcakes and you’ve got yourself a little 3 year old heaven right here on earth!
Everybody had a great time, especially the birthday girl,but I am not exaggerating when I tell you that after 4 hours in the hot, humid Texas heat setting up pools, serving cupcakes and organizing big party fun, I was convinced that I was on the verge of massive dehydration and a possible heat stroke. My face was beet red and sweaty from the heat, which let’s be honest, is really a quality you look for in a good hostess.
My near death from the heat was worth it though because last night as I was putting Caroline to bed she hugged me so hard and I said “Goodnight Birthday Girl” and she said “Tanks for my party Birthday Mama”. Oh, she does melt my heart.
