3 of the little 'uns in my moms' group are born in April/early May. Which is part of the reason our weekends are so busy right now. And talking with my friends about their children's birthdays always gets me spinning into planning Thatbaby's. And April is far too early to begin planning an October birthday. But it's so hard when you see such fantastic parties like those thrown by the amazing women I'm friends with! Saturday was Little HW's birthday party- a carnival themed day of fun.
And he had a partner in crime with Juristoddler, who he convinced to climb up and join him. Seriously, what a good sport Juristoddler is - I mean, Thatbaby is bossy and likes to be in charge. I don't know if I could handle being friends with him.
It's always nice to attend functions thrown by my mom's group. Everyone understands when conversations have to stop mid-sentence to be restarted later. And now that we have the second round, there is always a free hand to hold a baby so that mom or 1st child needs can be met (this is especially important during these potty training ages when sometimes you need to drop everything for a potty run). It's also nice because there are several sets of eyes on your child, so you can sit and try to relax knowing someone is making sure your kid doesn't plunge their face into the cake or a bush.
