... I was highly pregnant with my first child. Gosh, it feels like just yesterday. Ten years ago today I sat in my OBG's office, two days after my due date, and she informed me that I should go to the hospital that night to get induced. All of a sudden it was SO REAL... I was gonna have a baby!!! I was gonna be a MOTHER!!! MEEEEEE!
Of course the mother part doesn't feel like "just yesterday" by now. Actually I feel like I've been a mother hen forever, lol.
Anyways, my Erina had her little birthday party on Friday. She loves to plan parties and I left it pretty much up to her. She designed her caterpillar cake and was mighty proud of it too =).
A storm blew in Friday, so we were stuck inside. I was a bit worried, I don't handle noise well and neither does Erina. All in all it turned out just perfect, we had enough activities to keep 12 kids entertained for two hours.
First up was the goody bag decorating:
Then it was time to paint a flower pot:
Off to play with snails... we had snail races planned, but the snails did not cooperate AT ALL.
Next we made bird feeders out of pine cones, peanut butter and bird seeds. Wow, that was messy!!
Finally it was cake time!
Oh, and there was this one kid at the party... she was wild... loud... and didn't listen to her mother. I even heard her use her kids full name several times. You know what that means, right? You better listen or else!!!! Guess who that kid was??
... yep, it was my own, lol!!
Thanks to all the mommies who helped out!! I couldn't have done it without you!
