Birthday Weekend a Success: Must. Sleep. Now.

"Mommy will you open this? Mommy can I play with this? How does this toy work? Will you play this game with me? Mommy can I ride my bike? No wait, can I fingerpaint? Oh, I changed my mind- can we look for bugs outside? Or maybe we should draw with my new markers? Oh yeah, I need my new markers opened! And my watercolors and my lip gloss and my new Kelly doll. Can you please help me?? What's wrong with you, Mom???"

God, I love this girl but I am BEAT. Thanks to all who helped make the birthday party a success. I always feel a bit on edge around large groups of people and this was the largest amount of people I'd ever had inside my house (yeah, thanks a lot GOD for all the RAIN), so I apologize now if I didn't get a chance to chat with anyone in particular for very long. Hopefully nobody hates me too much. :-) Even though I'm exhausted I feel incredibly happy and very lucky right now to have the life that I do. Mish mish mush, I know. I don't know what I ever did to deserve the big slice of karmic chocolate cake I've gotten but I'm definitely not taking it for granted.
