I can’t believe that just a year ago I was going nuts trying to make the best 1-year party I could.
This year? Not so much.
I’m not sure if I have my third trimester exhaustion to blame or what, but I had no desire to make a big deal out of this year’s birthday. Sorry, girlies. Momma will do better next year.
Here’s what we did to celebrate:
Got a new outdoor toy. I’m not showing you ours because it’s on our itty bitty apartment patio surrounded by bags of recycling, a grill, a large, orange, half-deflated kiddie pool, and way too many pots of dead plants.
Had pink and purple homemade-from-the-box birthday cake.
Got some toddler-sized brooms, a new baby doll, and pretty Mega Blocks. I feel kind of guilty giving cleaning supplies as a gift, but really they love trying to sweep with our broom and I can’t stand them knocking everything over with it and fighting over the one broom.
Rode our new trikes from Aunt and Uncle (thank you!).
We would’ve loved to have family and friends over to celebrate, but our apartment is pretty small. So it was just the 5 of us this year, and none of the adorable decorations from their first birthday. Still, I think it’s not too shabby for a second birthday, don’t you?
