Oh, the decisions! Classes & Parties...

This week we're registering Amelia for next year's preschool class. I cannot believe she's already signing up for a 2's class! How can she be so old already?

I spent a good bit of time over the weekend trying to choose between all the options her school offers. If they'll let us start with the July summer program, Amelia will begin attending Tues & Thurs only, but from 9:00 - 4:00 (instead of 9:30-1:30). This extra time will make up for my loss of a school day (Wednesday), and allow me to be in the office for a couple more hours when I do go in. I'm nervous about how she'll handle the nap time, but otherwise think she will do wonderfully.

Steve & I were not planning on having a birthday party for Amelia this year. But after talking to friends and my sister (who really wants to attend a party for her niece), I decided that we will host a party again this year. The local park/playground already has their pavillions booked, and all the other locations I found were just too much money. I'd rather spend more on parties in the future when she really cares and will remember it all. So I'm in party planning mode again!

Last year I needed everything to be absolutely perfect. I wanted everyone to walk away from the party talking about how cute & unique it was. Now I wonder... why? This year, as I honor my pact to myself for more balance, I understand that I can go the simple route and the day will be just as fun. I'm hoping for nice weather so we can set up some tables in the yard. I want a bubble machine so the kids can enjoy popping & running through the cloud of shimmery bubbles. I want a cute cake, and maybe we'll order pizzas. Done. And Amelia will think it was just as magical a day as she had last year. I'm excited for party day now!!!

Still can't believe my little baby girl is going to be TWO. Thirty-nine days left before her birthday.
