The Baby Is Officially a Big Boy
Today is Sam's official 2nd birthday. The big party was yesterday--fuzzy monster theme and all--granparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. But we've been plotting for weeks--how to say "two"--(not one or 'free'!)
Sam was all decked out in Elmo. We made hysterical monster cupcakes and more monster themed food. It was fun and sweet and exhausting. Today we're all in recovery mode, and Sam is enjoying lots of new treasures.
And I keep learning from this little guy--to find joy in life and to let go of the small stuff and not to worry too much about the big stuff. At his party he was overwhelmed and tired, so he went upstairs for a little down time. Sometimes I feel like in the ways of wisdom he really is the big boy, and I'm just the toddler.
What are you learning from kids these days?
