THE WEEKEND! Wrap up the weekend! Don't be pervy... HA! You know you missed me ;)
We had quite the busy weekend around here. Just coming off a nasty few days with the stomach flu, I was unsure any sort of weekend was to be had. But we rallied. Puked and rallied, if you will... But rallied none the less. With multiple birthday parties and a broadway performance of Mary Poppins on the line, the girls we magically well! Why doesn't this work on school days?
First on the docket was a Strawberry Shortcake birthday party for Penny Lane's best little friend, Maeve. We did gymnastics (well, I didn't) had pizza and the cutest Strawberry Shortcake cake ever! Kicking myself for not getting a picture of it! For getting any worthwhile pictures for that matter. This. This is all I got? Fail, Jessica, fail.
Fast forward two hours and we are off to birthday party number 2! There was a party there in the middle but we opted out of that one... Well, I put a kabosh to it as the meltdowns over who got which IDENTICAL bag of popcorn. Genius move on my part, I must say as they were perfect angels for the next party. Lucy's best friend forever, Taylor and her little brother Max (ugh now the Max & Ruby song is stuck in my head...) turned 4 and 2, respectively! They had a Barbie and Tractor themed party at the super cool, super retro Dust Bowl. A quarky little bowling alley downtown. Loved it! The girls had so much fun, and of course the birthday girl was precious. We just adore her and her sweet family. We are lucky to have great friends with great kids!
The girls bumper bowled, played arcade games, ate cake and got face paint! The face paint lady is MAGIC! She is unreal... We are definitely getting her for the girls princess party in January! Amazing!
We were wiped out by the end of the day and the girls were in bed and asleep by 7. Me... 9ish. On a Saturday. Love it.
Woke up Sunday morning to the girls bring me breakfast in bed. Nilla waffers and a juice box. Not going to lie, I was not upset about the menu. Hit the spot :) We laid in bed all morning watching cartoons (the girls) and sleeping (me.) It was wonderful.
Then, in the afternoon, my mom and I took Lucy on a special adventure to see the Broadway performance of Mary Poppins! She did really well, considering it was 3 hours long and very different from the Disney version she is used too. But she got to get all dressed up and was very excited to be doing "big girl" stuff! We enjoyed the performance, but I will tell you... Disney knocked that one out of the park. You just sinply can not beat Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. Period. End of Story.
This evening I was shocked to discover, while petting my sweet baby girl kitten, Dodger's belly that her b@lls had dropped. She is a he. I guess her name is more appropriate now, as my dear friend Jane pointed out... I'm still not over it. Bombshell, I tell you. Bombshell.
And I will leave you with this little gem that Lucy spouted out this evening...
Lucy: Mommy! I haaave to ask you a question. A big question...
Me (worried it was a Santa question, thats how serious she looked): Yes, Lucy, what is it?
Lucy (with a very worried expression): Is it true that food turns into poop and drinks turn into pee pee?
Me (mouth dropped open, stuttering): Ummmm... Yes? I mean, yes. That is true.
