Mom picked you up at school on your birthday & had a little surprise in mind! We went to Monkey Joe's for a little surprise! You were so excited when we got there, but a little confused as to why your friends weren't there to celebrate with you. None the less, you got over it & were more than content to run, jump & play with your little brother & Mommy! At one point you stopped jumping, ran over to me & hugged me & said "Mommy, this is the BEST birthday date EVA!" My heart melted. We jumped & slid & played & tickled for about an hour. Har was loving it too! And then, and then, and then....life happened. While you were jumping away in the Disney bounce house, Har was pretending to drive one of the pretend play cars. He was in "jump mode" & jumped right off without thinking & OUCH! Little booger laid on the floor, held his breath for a good 30-45 seconds & then screamed! He calmed down a bit, but refused to walk. We went home to Daddy & the rest of the night was a whirlwind. You were on bday high & too distracted to even realize that Mommy & Daddy were all out of sorts. Make Harlan walk, Harlan cries, hold Harlan, Harlan cries, make Harlan walk agin, he walks & then cries.... We finally decided that Mom would take Har to the hospital to get his foot checked & you & Dad would have a boys night. We gave you your new treasure chest & you absolutely loved it...and Mom & Har rushed out the door. Har was munching away n pb crackers at the ER & then decided to walk around...seriously? Seriously? It was a quick trip to the ER & we were home to sing "Happy Birthday" & have some fun with a surprise visit from Grancie & Granpy.
This weekend will be full of much more birthday love! Today you get to go to NJ to visit Great Gma P with Gramma & PopPop & then you have your school-friend party Saturday & family-neighbor party on Sunday! Most of Momma's guilt from having to leave you on your bday has subsided & hopefully I can make it up to you this weekend.
Being silly while we sang to you!
