I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep

Party Animal!

I am terrible with dates. My husband will tell you I could not remember his birthday for the first year of our relationship. Particularly humiliating since we have the same birthday. Now it's hard to forget with the barrage of  ID-ing waiters who never fail to ask us if we know we have the same birthday.
What??!!! We do??!!!

One date no woman EVER forgets however, is her due date. I had a LOT of close friends who were due in the 9 months pre-June Bug. So my due date was marked not by how many weeks I was, but rather by when everyone else was due, first K, then A, then O and so on.

So now we're celebrating all those first birthdays. Actually those first birthdays are saving my social life. Luckily  for us, June Bug is still at the age where party invites also include the parents. Soon enough he'll be asking me to drop him off a block away so I don't embarrass him in my Uggs and skinny jeans...but until then, Mom and Dad get to enjoy the party too.

Today we celebrated another 1st Birthday.  This was a scary one for me. A year ago, my BFF of 20 years and my favorite stay-at-home mom shared a due date. One D-bug came a week early, the other D-bug a week late (yep, double D's).  
Life of the party!

Little D 1 & 2 were the last of the due dates marking the countdown to June Bug's big day (still an assumed May Bug at that time). 

In two weeks my BFF's little D will celebrate his 1st and then....

I can't go there just yet.  Instead I'll enjoy my 9 month peanut. All 18 lbs of him loving the swings at today's fiesta!
