Mom's here!!

My mom arrived yesterday and it's wonderful to have her here. I wish she would come and live with us!! Too bad I can't convince her to move out here...

Genny's b-day party is this Saturday and I had planned on making it a water party, with a pool, slip-n-slide, and water activity center. But it's supposed to be chilly and overcast, so I went to Party City and picked up some cones (maybe we can kick a ball around them?) and a horse shoe toss game. I understand that 2 year old's don't need activities, but I can't stand the thought that there is nothing to do at a birthday party.

Now all I have to do is make thank you cards for myself and her. Let's see how long it takes for me to make those... :)

Toddler tip of the day: If you need to eat in the car, use a bib and wrap napkins around your toddlers thighs to avoid stains. Also, ask for the restaurant to cut the sandwich into quarters so you don't have to get your hands grubby tearing chunks out of the sandwich.

Have a great Thursday, it's my birthday, and I got 3 (count 'em, THREE) packages in the mail today! Plus my neighbor Kate is going to make me a b-day dessert and I'm making honey mustard chicken with potato wedges tonight.
