My “baby” turned three last weekend. Here’ s how the party planning went:
“What do you want to do for your birthday, big guy?”
“Nothing. I don’t need anything. Just a cake with a fan on it.”
The simplicity that comes with this age certainly doesn’t last long. I recognize that in the blink of an eye, he’ll be asking for a Playstation and some punk skater clothes. Big sis is getting a trip to New York City for her birthday. She originally requested a Pump-It-Up Party in Raleigh, including her entire kindergarten class. I figured by the time we entertained and fed all of those kids and put together some kind of party favor, we’d spend way more than a trip to NYC since we have frequent flyer miles and a free place to stay with Uncle Rogan. We’re hitting the American Girl Doll store and the ferris wheel at Toys R’ Us. Plus a boat tour to see the Statue of Liberty and most likely, a musical matinee. This all seems mighty grand for a girl about to turn SIX! How will we ever top it?
