The Weekend of Birthday Parties

Happy Monday!

Today is going to be a long day at work.   A brand new system is launching today and the problems that are going to be occurring are probably going to be non-stop.  It wasn't even 8:15 and I have already encountered a problem that brings my whole process to a stop.  YAY.

BUT, it gives my brain a chance to play catch up after a weekend filled with birthday parties.  On Saturday, we went to our friends house where he threw a surprise birthday party for his wife.  We always have a good time when we hang out with them and their family and friends are awesome.  We were on of the first guests to arrive and Baby Giggles was a bit cranky since she just woke up from her nap when we got there.  Thankfully, an 11 year old girl came and Baby Giggles fell in LOVE with her.  The little girl was so happy to be playing with her and kept her entertained for the WHOLE party.  She was so good with her that I felt a sign of relief because I was actually able to sit back and enjoy the party while they played.  Every time a new person came to the party, the girl would tell everyone to meet her new BFF.  Adorable.  It made me so happy because as a parent of a toddler who is now on the go and wants to be in everything and everywhere, I didn't have to hover over her and risk myself not having a good time because I was constantly watching over her.  That little girl probably had no idea the IMMENSE help she was in making our day much more enjoyable.

Then Sunday, we went to celebrate little sissy's birthday!  Sophia was also super cranky when we got there because she just woke up from a nap and was hungry.  But after a few chips with spinach dip, she started to calm down and then started playing and having a good time.  She ate like a monster too, so crazy.  I kept finding myself stuffing her face with pasta.  Just like her mama, loves Italian food. She even had ice cream and fruit to finish off the day.

And that brings us back to here, good ole Monday.  I'm ready to attack this week, are you?

Isn't it the best when an older kid loves your little kid and you can breathe for a second!?
