And just like that, four years flew by in the blink of an eye. You guys, my first born is FOUR! 😩 Before I know it he’ll be a teenager.
Today we are going to brunch with Santa at a place called Long Beach Oyster House in Maryland to celebrate. It’s all you can eat for kids & they get to see Santa. For the adults, all you can eat AND all you can drink bloody mary’s & mimosa’s. It’s a kid win and parent win! The whole family is coming so it’s going to be a good time, I’m really excited!
Yesterday was his party and we had a blast! Just like most little boys right now, his party was Paw Patrol. We had it at a small restaurant called Bogey Mccaws. I booked a private room and it had an arcade & “Ball-O-City” for the kids (it’s pretty much a huge play area with a crap ton of soft foams balls, it’s pretty neat). The kids had so much fun and I’m pretty sure the adults enjoyed the arcade just as much as the kids. Kyle had all of his friends and cousins there to celebrate. His face was lit up the entire time, and that’s all that matters, if he had fun, I had fun.
Even Lilly had a blast celebrating her brother. My girl was knocked out last evening.
When it comes to my kids, I want everything perfect and just the way they want it… Ok… maybe just the way I want it ;). To be honest, they just want presents, cake, and to play with their friends. It’s us mom’s who want all extravagant decorations and cakes. Is it me or did the party planning become so much more intense from when I was kid!? What happened to McDonalds parties with a happy meal, cake, and a play place. Mom’s now a days pay hundreds on cakes that just get eaten anyway and decorations that get torn down in a few hours. Trust me, I am totally one of those mom’s, but the anxiety and the hole in my wallet makes me not want to be one!
The past three years, I went all out for his parties. Just to see the money I spent go in the trash. This year I didn’t, I bought a small amount of decorations and spent a little bit more on where the location of the party was and it was SO much more fun. The kids played in the arcade, ate a bunch of pizza and cake while the adults got drinks from the bar and had fun themselves. It was a win for everyone!<<<
One of the most rewarding things about being a mom is watching your babies grow into amazing people. My son never fails to make me proud. He is one of the most intelligent kids I’ve ever met, he could spend hours building different vehicles with legos, or creating towers with blocks. The ideas he comes up with are so creative, it amazes every time. He also has that sensitive “Mama’s Boy” side then I can’t get enough of. Yes, sometimes it’s too much when he starts the whining, but I’m damn sure I’m going to miss it when he’s older. You just have to cherish every moment before our little humans turn into grown adults.
Happy fourth birthday Kyle. We love you to the moon & back. Time to enjoy a fun day ❤️
