Nine years ago today I made my new boyfriend cupcakes that said “baby cheeks” (one of our endless inside jokes) for his 29th birthday. Today our five year old, Mad, and I baked him a pineapple colada cake. While our three year old, Bitty, made him a play dough cake. And our nine year old, Aub, made him a sweet video collage. This evening we went to celebrate his birthday with a Chicago style dinner at a place that just opened that we first tried on a trip to Chicago last year. It was a fun evening with our little monsters and our moms celebrating a fella that we all adore. Happy birthday love!
I knew it wouldn’t be a good thing getting a call from our eighteen year old son at 7am on a Saturday morning. After a fun night at a show and forgetting to take his glasses off before going into a pit he got a quick life lesson. Mosh pits and eyeglasses never mix. The poor fella is half blind without them, so thankfully we were able to find a place to get an appointment and a new pair in a matter of hours.
Aside from the craziness with Budah’s glasses we decided to participate in our neighborhood yard sale day to get rid of some clutter. What better time for our three little lovelies to sell some lemonade? They sold out and were beyond excited that their big brother was their first customer too. I can still remember his first lemonade stand when he was all of five years old.
