Party pooper

Someone asked if I'd started planning Sam's fourth birthday party when it hit me...

I should be planning two birthday parties.

I should be complaining about having two children with birthdays too close together to do them both justice in the party department.

I should be saying things like, "I'm waiting to plan Sam's birthday until after I see how Alex's goes."

I should be printing up cute little invitations that fit in with a theme suitable for a first birthday, but not repeating the Tigger theme I used for Sam.

I should be thinking about guest lists and menus and cakes.

I should be weighing whether to have just family, or just friends, or some combination of both.

I should be worrying about how much money two birthday celebrations is going to cost us.

I should...I should...I should...

Yes you should be doing all that and I am so sorry that you won't get to.For some reason I have been obsessing lately about what Caitlin and Thomas' relationship would be like now. He should be two and she almost 4 and I think all the time how she would have a little playmate/friend at home and how great it would and SHOULD be (ok, I realize it wouldn't be so idyllic and they would fight, etc....) but I feel so cheated, and that she was cheated, from having that relationship. It sucks big time. (((hugs))) to you Catherine.
