As some of you might have noticed, Izzy is going to be a year old next month. How the hell did that happen? Seriously? It literally feels like I JUST had him. I swear, I JUST brought him home from the hospital last Sunday. How is he a year old already? I just don't understand. At first, I wasn't going to do the whole birthday party thing. It just seems like a lot of work, and I am lazy. But John convinced me to throw him a little party - just a few people, some balloons, and a homemade cake. Nothing fancy.
Speaking of parties, I took the kids to a birthday party last weekend. It was held at Gymboree. Although the party was very interactive and extremely fun, I am shocked that other people invest so much money into birthday parties. I don't know how much the party cost, but I can guarantee you that the parents spent at least $500. They bought dinner for all of the guests - and there were A LOT of guests. And the goody bags were AWESOME. Obviously, I am a cheap bastard.
In other party news, I am going to throw Porgie a "Potty Party" after we get back from Kentucky. With cake and ice cream and the whole nine yards. It should be lots of fun. And then, I am going to actually potty train my child. I feel like everyone in the blogsphere has already started potty training, but we are just not ready yet. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will be ready in January.
And I'll leave you with this fun pictures of the kiddos enjoying their laptops...
