*sigh* Is it just me, or is there a general feeling of depression after a party is over? Baby girl’s party went very well. My sister was on-time, but my father-in-law and his wife were late. I guess someone has to be 🙂 I think I made a new parent-friend in the mother of the one girl from school that came. We only had one school friend at the party because Punkingirl had been sick. She was a delightful child though. She and my girl and the neighbor’s daughter played together the whole time and there was never once a nasty word or reaction amongst them. The school friend’s mother is a HUGE Star Trek fan! She has been to ST conventions! She loved the new movie! Kindred spirit, I think.
Hmm. My mother came and hubby’s mother, plus his father and step-mother. My sister and her partner and my nephew. Our neighbor’s up the street, the husband was my husband’s frat brother in college, they came with their daughter. And another college friend of my husband’s came. Over all, not too crowded and I thought it was pleasant. My daughter got a lot of the stuff she wanted. Webkins, Pokemon, Legos and Arts&Crafts. She is thrilled. She has played Legos a lot already and is now playing with some stencils, paper and colored pencils. She is in artist heaven.
For their birthdays, we always let the kids choose where they want to eat for dinner. Baby girl wants to eat at Chick-fil-a. WTF? Inexpensive I guess, but not very birthday like. We are gearing up to go there now. I hope my little boy is good with it. He has eaten very little today because his tummy is achy. He hasn’t been actively sick since 8am though. That’s a good thing. He is pale and has dark circles under his eyes, and he is very whiny. But other than that I think he is alright. He hasn’t even felt like playing on the computer this afternoon.
Hmm. Oh, my sister is having a baby. Have I mentioned that? She is due in April. She found out yesterday that the baby will be a girl! It will be nice to have someone close to me have a baby. I have such extreme biological clock crap at least half the time. I am pushing 40. One would think that my hormones would know that is too damned old to be having some more kids. Also, I have three already! Why can’t my hormones remember how many children I have? More than three is too many for me! I’ll be glad when I stop craving babies for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When my new niece is born, I will go over to my sister’s and lick the baby and snuggle it and kiss it and gobble it up until I no longer need another one of my own.
