It's been one of those nights...

Nathan had a meltdown because he didn't like dinner. Salmon, zucchini and sweet potato.
Ryan somehow got his diaper off and played with the content inside. I won't go further into detail.
I tried to give Ryan a bath and he screamed and pulled and twisted so much that he fell several times and nearly cracked his head open. Then peed all over the floor when I was drying him off.
Nathan then had another meltdown because I wouldn't  give him a graham cracker. Sorry kid, if you don't eat dinner, you don't get a post dinner snack.
And when I went to pack lunches for tomorrow, I discovered the carton of milk had a hole in it and spilled not only all over my counter but also inside the door of my refrigerator.

We've sill got 25 minutes to bedtime but I'm going to go ahead and call it a night. I'm done.
Nathan can put himself to bed, right?

Nathan's 4th Birthday

This was Nathan's first birthday in the new house! He has recently been obsessed with Curious George and at night we've been reading a book all about George going to a pizza party. So his theme this year was a no brainer.

During the week, we had a few of his friends over for a birthday playdate. Each kid got to help make their own pizza. They had a great time and played with all the toys while the pizzas cooked. Nathan had a great time hanging out with his friends.

On his actual birthday, we had my parents and siblings over for a big family party. In the past I have always made Nathan's birthday cakes myself but this year I just couldn't motivate myself to do it. Between working full-time and taking  care of the boys by myself during the week, I just couldn't find the time to do it so this was Nathan's first grocery store birthday cake. And it was awesome! It looked great and would have put any sad attempt at a homemade monkey face cake to shame.

Nathan is an amazing kid and I feel so lucky to be his mom. Happy Birthday Nathan, wishing you another wonderful year!
