We held Goofy Junior's birthday party this past Saturday, complete with giant Clifford-the-Red-Dog's-Head balloon, cupcakes (two flavors!), dollar sandwiches and park shelter. Junior had 1 1/2 hours of visiting with friends, eating cupcakes, playing on the playground equipment and blowing bubbles...followed by throwing up of the cupcakes (Note to Moms: cupcakes and bubble mix do not mix well in toddler tummies), red eyes, no nap and much whining. Oh happy day!
This was followed by Mother's Day on Sunday, which Junior misstook as "Second Day of Birthday Celebration", instead of "Mommy Needs some Quality Time Away from Junior" Day. Again, no nap (for any of us), much whining, kicking of the dogs, etc. But at least I got a nice chicken parmesan dinner (with wine!) compliments of Loving Husband. I was almost able to ignore the spaghetti flying past my head.
All in all, a successful weekend.
