Been a while since I updated! I am creatively spent at the moment, so I can’t even come up with a witty post title. The past few weeks have been extremely busy with work, the kids have been seriously keeping me on my toes, and I have had lots of fun little things going to in between all of that as well. This weekend I hosted a baby shower for one of my best friends in the world, and it came together really nicely, despite my major last-minute accomplishments:) The theme was “storybooks”, so all the food coordinated with some kind of childrens’ book, and all the guests were asked to bring their favorite kids’ book, and sign the inside cover instead of bringing a card. I loved that idea! She got so many great books!
In leiu of cheesy shower games, we did a diaper raffle (each guest that brought a package of diapers was entered into a drawing for a prize- I got a starbucks card, and an itunes giftcard to give out), and we did the “timer” game: as she opened her gifts, I set a kitchen timer for a random number of minutes, and whoever gave the gift that she was opening when it went off got a prize.
The food: I can take almost no credit here, I delegated this task to C’s other friends who were awesome enough to help out. Ok, I did the carrots and ranch, but that’s it.
They all did an amazing job! I think this would actually make a pretty good kids party theme too!
In other news- the kids are nuts. The threes are officially WAY harder than the twos (I can already tell they will be). Attitudes are forming and we are doing lots of time outs for… the “fresh mouth” as my parents called it. When they are good, they are very good, and when they are bad, they are terrible. But when they are outside playing on the playground, they are always happy:)
Our good friends, the Adams boys, just celebrated their third bithday this weekend… I went tpo the party briefly, but had to leave since I was hosting the baby shower, er, simultaneously:) It appears that Daddy and Ploy did a great job, and the kids had a blast! The only problem is that they wake up every day now asking for birthday cake:)
In other news, I have decided to give up my role as co-author of Multiples and More. While I loved being a part of it, I just can’t justify the amount of time I spent working on it, and really am not able to give it the time it needs. I’d really rather spend that time sleeping, or working out:)
