I am very behind on blogging, the jet lag has been pretty brutal and at home there are all these things to do instead of blog, so hard! But today is the first of 4 days of the Colin birthday extravaganza! Well, not so much of an extravaganza, but today was his little school party where we got to bring in cupcakes. He got this birthday crown, which sadly gave him a paper cut on his nose. Tomorrow we will have a special McDonald's lunch with his local little girl cousins, party for school friends on Saturday, then on Sunday (his actual birthday) we will have a little family dinner, including a sparkler for his cake. Good times. And Brian and I to get ready for his birthday this week went to Toys R Us for the first time in our 5 years of parenting. Maybe we should have held out since we had done so well without Toys R Us, but he really, really wanted some Bakugon things. We thought we should look at some instead of ordering on-line. What have we done? I am glad our kids do not know of that place yet, wow, I kind of never want to go there with my children.
Since Jane did not get a preschool cupcake, I let her eat the sprinkles out of the container I took them in. It kept her busy for at least 30 minutes, which is always nice.
