Doncha just love being awake at 4am? Gah! For the last week Sarah’s thing has been to wake up at about 3:30. She just lays there, talks, and blows raspberries. Eventually she starts fussing a little and after a couple of attempts at putting in her binky she goes to sleep about 20 minutes later. In the mean time I wake up and am awake for a while. So here I am being awake for a while.
In hindsight I am sort of glad that no other kids came to Christopher’s birthday. It was sort of overwhelming for him. After he got up we let him open presents from us, Honey & Poppy, and my sister (we saved the art easel and paper for a birthday pressie). He loved everything and wanted to play with it all. I found some Thomas the Tank Engine trains, cars, track, and conductor’s shed on e-bay. Since the set of trains we got over a year ago (the Interactive Railway) at a garage sale is no longer being made we either have to buy new Wooden Railway stuff (crap in my opinion) or find stuff on e-bay. Damn and those e-bay bidders are ruthless too!
His “party” was pretty simple. We went to a park, fed people sandwiches, and had cake. He played in the sand and on the play equipment for a lot of the time. There is also a wading pool and we eventually got him to put his hands in the water. Jonah uploaded some pictures of the event to his Facebook account. At about 1:30 he started asking to go home. I think he was just exhausted from all of the excitement of the day!
In other news … we are 2/3rds of the way through season 3 of Weeds. Man that is a funny show! We don’t get Showtime, so we have to wait until it’s out on dvd to watch it. But the nice thing about that is we can see it all in a few days! The episodes are only 30 minutes long so you’re just really getting into an episode and it ends.
Happy Monday everyone!
