You know what? Nathan is going to be 1! I have some decisions to make.
First, I need to choose between
and I wish this was still in the running but unfortunately, daddy didn't care for that one. Can I make my case though? We're planning to go to Disney World this February. That means Mickey Mouse makes perfect sense, right? But, I won't fight it...it falls under one of those things that is not worth a fight. :) I guess that we can realize that, is part of how we're still pretty darn happy most of the time after 16 years of marriage.
big stinkin' party or family party (and that would include close family friends of course). He's the 4th child so I hope I've learned a few things...it will prob'ly be a smaller "family" party.
Do I make the cake? Knowing it will cause me great frustration and I will threaten to anyone in the vicinity that I'm throwing away my cake decorating supplies as soon as this stupid cake is done and why did I ever think I could make the cake anyways? But then feel great when I get lots of compliments on it?
Or do I get a friend of mine to make it-who makes awesomely delicious and professional cakes? There will still be tons of compliments on the cake...only I'll believe them and I won't get to take credit for them.
Really, these are not hard decisions. I think I'll do the dino stuff. That cake will be aDORable and in the future he might want sports stuff...then I'll be stuck with it. This is the only year I TOTALLY get to choose everything (except Mickey Mouse ;) ). And we'll have a medium party with family and a few close friends. (Want to come?? ;) ) And (despite knowing how it will upset me) I think I might make his cake. If I chicken out...it's okay. Here are some examples of the cakes Robyn has made for my kiddos:
So, no pressure. As long as I decide in time to get her to make it (she is kept very busy!)
I'm so excited, but so sad that Nathan is turning 1. I can't believe it. The year has flown by.
