No time to type…
Tuesday is Jackson’s sixth birthday!!! I can’t believe in a few hours, I will have a six year old!
And birthdays mean tackling!
We just got in at midnight Sunday night from our vacation and so we are in full tackle mode to get unpacked and ready for the big day. We had left just after Christmas so our tree and all of decorations were still up when we arrived home. So today not only do we have to unpack, but we need to take down the tree, etc.
And as usual, my kitchen table/desk needs to be tackled. I need to use it as a table tomorrow!
So the to do list is:
- go to dollar store
- go to grocery store
- order cake (we are having ice cream cake!)
- take down tree and put away decorations
- tidy house
- prepare loot bags
- tackle kitchen table
So far only the first three tasks are done. And the tree is down, but the boxes are still out.
What are the birthday plans?
We start off with cupcakes for his class at school. (We will make those in the morning – Jackson is in afternoon kindergarten.)
Then after school we will head to Laser Tag with five of his friends. After a couple games, we will come back to our house and have dinner and cake.
BUT – I am not finished yet! No – I am a crazy mother who has planned TWO parties.
The second celebration will be at the local recreation center on Sunday afternoon. To that party, I have invited the boys in Jackson’s class and his cousins.
(If you are wondering why I am so nuts as to go through birthday stress twice, I did it because Jackson desperately wanted to have a laser tag birthday party, but we also wanted to include his school friends and cousins. Most of those moms thought that their kids wouldn’t be quite old enough to play Laser Tag, so we are having two separate events. Yes – I am crazy. But at the time it seemed like a good solution.)
Oh – and did I mention that Olivia is in super fuss mode tonight? I think she might be getting a cold. Good grief – this is going to be interesting.
I will post a picture for Wordless Wednesday (or maybe I will do a whole birthday photo post.) We will see if I get any good shots.
