It was two years ago today that my life changed forever…
And it just keeps getting better and better:
That’s right. My daughter is two today. *sniffles!* I am not one to normally get mushy about birthdays, but I just can’t believe it. Two years! She’s, like, this big girl now. *sob* Okay, I’ll stop.
*reaches for tissue, takes deep breath*
We’re not making a huge deal about the birthday, just a small party with the family and a few close friends. I know I have years of birthday party pressure ahead of me—gift bags! themes!—so I am trying to keep it simple while that’s still an option. We have bought her a play kitchen, which looks like it will take a team of engineers to assemble (not for the first time, I am oh so grateful I am married to a carpenter). I have no doubt she WILL get a lot of stuff, between grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins, which is why, when she’s asleep or out of the house, I’ve been secretly spiriting things away and then waiting to see if she misses them. If she doesn’t, it’s off to the swap shed or onto Craigslist. I mean, a play kitchen takes up SPACE, people!
In other news, last night I finally got a chance to watch the pilot of Glee, which I downloaded from ITunes eons ago. I’d heard it was good, but was hesitant as I am not much into show choir or glee club (I wasn’t much of a joiner of anything in high school, truth be told. and I really can’t sing). But OH MY GOD this show was so good. Funny and inspiring and totally cute. I can’t wait for it to start up again, although I have no idea when it’s coming back. Hopefully in the fall? Although I need another show to watch like my daughter needs a play kitchen. Oh, well.
Gotta go, the birthday girl wants to have a tea party. Today, and all days, I am happy to oblige.
