I hate planning parties. Who do you invite? Did you get everyone? Who does not talk to this or that one. Version 4 of the seating chart to begin shortly. Supposed to be a celebration for my daughter for Making her First Holy communion instead becomes a series of tracking down RSVPs and drama. Add to it my non practicing religious side and it makes for a somewhat stressful few weeks leading to the event.
Then we have the prophylactic Mastectomy. I am one of two dozen plus cousins on my mother’s side where she was the oldest of 9 children. Add the husband’s family and some friends, you can end up with a cast of thousands some of which know all about the surgery and have from the beginning other who did not have a clue. Now I am challenged with trying to get everyone on the same page prior to 5/19 so that the topic of conversation at every table is not my boobs! In the end, I just hope it is a good time for all. Open bar and DJ for the kids..what else do you need right? Should be a good time!
I have a mother’s day tea at Madison’s school Wednesday. She is so excited. Funny how something so minor in my mind can mean so much to a 5-year-old. I also had a hair appointment for the same time (to have my natural color put back into my hair :-))but had to move that a few hours. SO I will go to the tea than right to the salon making me very late to pick her up. Because of that Madison will now take a small nap at the Pre-K. Now, Madi has not taken a nap for me for months. I normally pick her up right after lunch. She thinks it is so cool to nap there. She has already picked out a blanket and special stuffed friend to take with her that day. Amazing how little minds work! We will see if she still finds it so fun when I pick her up.
- I am grateful for a much-needed chiropractor visit this morning!
- Megan’s first attempt at playing catcher in her softball game being a success
- The super hug I get from Madison when I pick her up from school
- Hearing “I love you mommy” from both as I put them to bed…nothing better than this!
