James has a magnetic personality. I’m not saying this to brag; it’s just the way it is. People young and old are drawn to him, and he seems to take it in stride. Skip and I have friends and are liked well enough, but I don’t think of either of us as being magnetic. But James is, and sometimes I marvel at that because I can’t relate to it. And sometimes I worry that this will be a kind of burden for him to bear (which may be ridiculous, but I’m somewhat of a worrier by nature).
I say all this as a preface to the fact that I’m worried that no one will come to James’ first real friend birthday party next week - not because he isn’t well liked, but because his birthday is and always will be around spring break. Honestly, he will be so excited to see his cousins (my brother’s four kids) and Skip’s parents, who live a couple of hours away, that he probably won’t care who else is there. BUT as his momma, I want all of his little friends to come (which we already know won’t happen since more than half are on vacation) because he deserves a great birthday. Being a parent is stressful.
My almost four year old in response to my mom asking what kind of birthday party he’s having next weekend. This is why we have hidden the party supplies (Star Wars of course) in Evie’s closet. You have been talking about this party for months so yeah we got that you wanted a Star Wars theme. This is exactly how I imagine Skip was at four.
This girl and her big brother decided to get sick less than 24 hours after I left for a five day work trip. Thank God for a sweet husband and a very kind, willing mother. Can’t wait to be home tomorrow!
Missing this sweet face already.
graceinplace:Perfect timing as I am not looking forward to leaving Skip and the kids to attend a training conference Sunday through Thursday of next week.
James loves the lobsters at Kroger to the point where he asked Skip to take a picture of them since he couldn’t go to store himself on Saturday.
The newest version of iTunes SUCKS.
