If my whole family wasn’t coming to town (ACK) for Baby Evan’s first birthday, I would be a posting fool about all the decorations, games, crafts and fun I’ve been buying and making for the party. Some of it is just so damn cute I can barely stop myself. But as my friend Sarah is always saying, it’s important to make wise choices. Of course, Sarah is usually talking to her 2 year old, but it’s still an important concept. Like for example, when Baby Evan chooses to eat mulch and Sarah’s daughter gets very concerned that “Baby Eban not make wise choice” even thought she TOLD him to stop eating that mulch! Of course, the wise choice in that situation would actually be for”Baby Eban’s” mother to stop her child from eating the dirty mulch on the playground, but Baby Eban’s mother is still working on remembering these things. Like I said, I’m trying to make wise choices so I’m starting with NOT posting every detail of the birthday party before anyone even gets her so they can all oooooh and aaaaaah over my skillz and talent. Plus I’m counting on that party to give me at least four days worth of posts (I know you’re SO excited) so I can give my brain a little break while it recovers from an influx of house guests and company.
