Indulging the Momma

Thursday, October 27, 2011

It's time for me to start planning Jack's second birthday party.  (No, it's not really time.  His birthday is in March.  But when you read lots of mom blogs and are on Pinterest with amazingly creative ideas hitting you in the face, like, nonstop, it becomes time to ponder these things.)

Last week, I had this crazy idea of an eighties themed party.  I could just picture Jack and all his little buddies with their polo shirts on, perhaps even doubled, with collars popped, while the adults relaxed and listened to Duran Duran and the Go-Gos.



I was toying with the idea of Rubik's Cubes as favors.  I had yet to fully harness the creative power of the idea.

My rationale was this: This is officially the last birthday party where he won't really notice of care what the theme is.  Therefore, I can choose a theme that *I* find entertaining, and hope he's not too embarrassed by it when he's a teenager.  But really, not even that last one.  He'll be embarrassed of us as a teenager, no matter what we do.  

I breezily threw out the idea of an eighties party to Durel.  He promptly nixed it.  He just sort of looked at me like I'd been possessed by a mildly confusing Pinterest addict and said, "Heather, he likes dinosaurs."

Oh, yeah.

So, before I throw myself into planning the Second Birthday Party for Little Dude, I'm indulging myself in a wee walk down memory lane.  Because I can't believe how quickly time flies.  Or how many diapers this means we've changed.
All I need is this bouncy chair and these sunglasses.
Being one ROCKS!


Charming the ladies before he could even SIT UP.

Still life with thumb.

Have you ever seen a blowfish, Mom?

I broke my leg.  They took me on a plane.
Now I'm sitting with the luggage.  Ain't nobody happy.
And now, I can go on with my party planning.  And I will be setting aside the Duran Duran, just in case you were wondering.

The Cure was much cooler.  (KIDDING.)



T-Rex it is,
Heather

  1. Hmmm...I guess Durel is right, though I would have enjoyed the 80s par-tay!

    You are so good. I can barely even think about Ike's first party, and it is in two months (can you believe that!?!?)

  4. So cute! I think you should throw yourself an 80's birthday party. Best to stick with the dinos for your wee one. :)
