Psyched to be 3


Psyched to be 3, originally uploaded by Secretsugar.

Bean's turning 3 on Saturday is part of what kept me away from blogging for so long. She had a real party this year, with four other toddlers plus some babies and big kids thrown into the mix. And their parents. So it was a lot of party prep, even if what we ate was lots of chips dumped into a bowl and an ice cream cake made of ice cream that I didn't actually make myself. Thank God for SIster! She was such a huge help with arranging bowls of chips, helping blow up balloons, decorating a birthday banner, and just generally offering her help up every time we turned around.

So I'm mama of a 3-year old now! Bean is so big all of a sudden and is also coming around to liking me again after the past year spent following Husband around in blind adoration. It's certainly easier to be a stay-at-home mom if your kids actually want to hang out with you.

Speaking of which, when her papa came home from work the other day and asked what we'd done today, Bean replied, "Hanged out." Funny girl.

What a cutie! I didn't know it was her birthday! 3. Such a wonderful age. I love when they can talk to you, "hang out" with you, like to help you, and say the cutest things! There is nothing better. Of course, I'm sure there are times you just want to scream and lock yourself in a closet but hey, those mommy moments are allowed! LOL

Happy late birthday to Bean! I agree, being at home is fun when the kiddos actually want to hang out. What a sweet, cute, and funny girl you have there!

She's so lovely. And yes, grown up looking! Glad you all had a good time and that Sister was so helpful!

Miss A has been going through a "Dada is the best" phase as well. And I agree, it does may things difficult when he's just not available sometimes!

The party was a blast, girlie. Kraken talked about it all weekend. Even funner was the 'girls night' that followed.
