Can you believe a whole week has gone by and I haven't blogged? I can't. And I can't seem to catch my breath. It was a week of adjusting (still haven't). A week of end of school activities. A week of preparing for my baby's 6th birthday. Let me repeat: my BABY'S. SIXTH. BIRTHDAY. GAH!
He gets a party this year. Yes, it's true. My kids only get a "friend" party every other year. Two one year and two the next. I'm mean like that.
So I decided to do an easy party. A baseball party. A party with no annoying little favors. I'll make baseball bracelets! But the stores have no baseball beads. No problem, I'll make baseball beads. And the bracelets. And personalized labels for the water bottles. (According to Zach, we must have water if baseball is being played.)
And no food. Just cake. Cupcakes that look like baseballs. Easy. Party 2-4pm. Water and cupcakes. And the only activity shall be baseball. Piece of cake. I'm brilliant.
HA. It seems I need more time. Time to make bracelets and labels and cupcakes. Time with which I need to grocery shop. And run errands. And maybe clean the bathrooms because I'm pretty sure the grime ate one of the children but I haven't had time to do a head count. Time I still haven't figured out since starting my new job. (Which I still love. Although the excitement over the meetings? Gone. How does anyone accomplish anything with all the meetings? And I'm still not sure WHY I must attend.)
And it seems I am lame. Cupcakes and water are not acceptable party foods. Well, they are acceptable but they are not enough. There must be snacks and there should probably be pizza. And soda. Or juice.
Ah, but why are we here? And what am I doing. There is gymnastics today and a party tomorrow and I'm blogging. GAH!
