1-Year Birthday and Birthday Party
It’s here, the day I’ve been looking forward to/dreading is here! Happy birthday to my sweet little guy. He was so excited about his birthday that he decided to get up at 4 a.m. this morning, isn’t that cute. Seriously though, he’s the only person that can make me smile at 4 a.m.
Well, no one told me that your child’s birthday parties are not fun for the parent. No one that is until afterwards. Now all I hear is, “It’s a nightmare”, “Thank God it’s only once a year”, “Serving alcohol to the adults is key”, etc.
I had these great expectations of my little guy smiling and waving to all his guests, diving into his birthday cake and icing flying everywhere. What we got was the above photo.
If you have had similar experiences, please leave a comment and make me feel better.
I think I’ve narrowed down part of the problem. He is obsessed with I-Phones and when 5 people are waving them right in front of his face to get his pic (looking like they’re handing it to him) then putting them back in their pockets (snatching them away from him) it makes him very “Chucky” (my new term for these little tantrums we’ve been witnessing lately).
Also I remember “Pre-B” that parents would blame their child’s behavior on “oh they’re so tired”. But it’s so true..he was tired.
In short, the past year has been the most rewarding, exhausting, exhilarating, stressful, joyful, complete year of my life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SON, I love you so much!
