I've got about a million things going on in my noggin right now. I love planning and throwing birthday parties for my kids...love it. But I literally lose sleep for days/weeks before the party...plans and lists and ideas are always floating around in my head. I've learned to not start planning it till a couple of weeks before the party or otherwise I'd drive myself crazy. But on the flip side, I get a little stressed out because my to do list feels like a mountain and I get a bit panicked that I won't get it all done. Good news is...I always do...or if I don't...no one notices.
I did get a bunch of things crossed off my list today. I started my cupcake tower, I'm hoping to finish it tomorrow. I got all of my birthday supplies...tableware, goodie bags, decorations, etc...all taken care of. I still need to put things together...cupcake, wall and table decorations. And make the stuff for the games. And order the food and balloons. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. But I get this way every time...every party. And I think I secretly love it. I love transforming the house into a little kid play haven for a day. I love the boys' faces when they see everything put together. I love staying up all night the night before making the cake. I love it. And I wouldn't have it any other way. So, for the next week and a half, my brain is going to be full. Full of all things Mario.
