Purple and 100
My little girl had her birthday party the other day. I cannot believe how fast the time is going; and who knows when she became a big sister; and now there is aÂ spunky little boy sleeping in my bedroom… Its true, the world doesnt stop for me. Nor it asked me for some special permission, for that matter.
The theme was purple, for the party. She was toying with a few ideas, but purple it was. The problem arose though, when we discovered we had nothing purple around. A bunch of balloons, napkins, streamers, plate and a forgotten indian sari left over from big sister saved the day. And the fact that she only wanted to invite 5 friends over, saved my sanity. Since I insist the celebrations are held at home, the parties usually leave me wasted, mostly because the house needs to be put in order, I think.
Why at home, you ask this crazy lady? Because its personal. We have been to a few parties in different venues, and I cant for the life of me remember which kid’s birthday it was. They all end up the same, because, well, they are the same. So I make dribble cakes (when the frosting surprises me in the middle of the night) and I arrange sandwiches and I clean house and walk in a daze for a day, but happy mama heart beats exhausted in my chest.
100-th is the post I am writing. Yet another thing that happened without me knowing. I still remember those first few posts when I wondered ifÂ I will everÂ fill the first page. I even changed the number of posts in it down to five from ten, so it will happen faster. And if you have read all one hundred…I wanna know about you. I might just have to marry you.
Cheers! For the flying time and the ability to enjoy it while its whizzing by.
Well I’m already married, but I’ve read them all and am will to make exceptions! LOL ;)
Love her purple outfit, it sounds like she had a great party. We do personal home parties as well!
CONGRATULATIONS for your big little girl! And for her mama, of course ;) I’m in my purple period too, so I really like the theme of the party.
And about the 100 posts and the marriage… I think most everybody here will have serious problem with Mr.Blab…
He is quite nice actually ;)
Jae, lets do it! Hawaii?
LMAO — well I’ve read all post too.. not everyday..but I adore catching up on your life.. Its like my movie night.. your world always seems soooo unreal and awe inspiring for me who is stuck in the life that continues to pass me by too quickly!
