7 Days and Counting

7 days until my lovely baby girl turns 2. I can't believe she is going to be 2, how fast the time has gone. I'm pretty excited for her party. I will be attempting a butterfly cake, which I've never done before. Here is a picture of the cake. I'll post a picture of the cake after I do it, I guess we'll see if it looks anything like the picture.

It is also 7 days until this wonderful little family comes to visit me. I am so excited! It has been over a year since I've seen my sister, brother-in-law, and niece. And now I get to see my new little niece! It's very exciting stuff.

This brings up new points I want to share though. I wonder if everybody feels this way. My sister coming makes me a little nervous because I'm worried that my house won't be clean or my kids won't behave well or the dinner I make will be gross. Not that my sister will judge me, but I'm worried for some reason. Does everybody worry about this kind of stuff? Isn't funny how we want to look in front of people? I guess it is all pride. Because a lot of the time my house looks cluttered with socks that my kids randomly take off and toys they like to play with and dog hair. Oh the dog hair! Sometimes my dinners don't turn out and sometimes my kids throw tantrums and yell. In the mornings I give them "frosting cookies" and fruit snacks, which in my defense in followed by oatmeal and fruit. I just want to appear my best I guess and now that I've written this down it appears silly.

Anyway, I'm ecstatic! Now that I've gotten my weird hang-up out of my head I can relax. Have a good Saturday everyone!

  1. Oh sweet sister of mine. My child not only randomly takes off socks but every other piece of clothing, too. She lays down on the floor and throws her fits. My dinners sometimes don't even get made and McDonald's steals our money. My house is cluttery. My daughter talks back. My new baby has colic.

    I love you. I'm thrilled to be seeing you. I'm counting the days. All Jaylee can talk about is "Ashee".

    There's no judging. There's just one really excited sister to see her sister, brother-in-law, nephews and niece.

    I don't care if we have horse poop, spinach burgers and sea water; I just wanna hug ya.
