We had a 2 day event for Brayden's 3rd Birthday. And, we had a blast!
We celebrated Brayden's and his cousin Mason's birthday by going to Bounce Town - which, of course, is a great way to let the littles be absolutely nuts and run around like maniacs! Aunt Mallory and Uncle Chris bought special dinosaur hats and masks - Brayden loved it! It was the start to a great weekend.
That night, B, John, and I did presents and cake. Every single gift was dinosaur related!
Saturday was the birthday bash! For me, it is a big deal - I don't do party planning very well... and, I defiantly do not cook, especially for a large group of people. But, I have to say, there were a lot of compliments - and the house was trashed, representative of 10 kids having a lot of fun :)
Especially, this big 3 year old!
Unfortunately, Sunday came and I had to send Brayden off to Virginia, again. I keep waiting for the time when it will get easier. But, I don't think it ever will. Today is day number 3 without him and I am still in my mopey phase. Alittle paralyzed not knowing what to do without him around. And, I do the typical torture - watch videos and cry - my whole heart aching. I typically revert to laying in bed. Dinner, in bed. Editing, in bed. TV, in bed. And, that is what I did last night. And, this morning, that is where I wanted to stay. In a few more days this phase will pass, and I will grow excited for his return. Cleaning, organizing, and waiting to see the truck pull up so I can kiss those perfect little lips again - the count down begins: 5 more days...
