Big Weekend

We have big plans around here for this weekend, as we will be getting ready for the first day of school AND hosting Tommy's birthday party. What was I thinking giving birth to a child at this time of year? At the time, I was only worried about being pregnant in the summer in South Carolina, and I thought that was bad enough. I wasn't even considering the madness that is Back To School and Birthday Combined.

We're having a Star Wars theme, and my latent inner Star Wars geek has emerged like Han Solo from carbonite. Not to mention that my friend Kim lent us about seven light sabers for the boys to play with at the party, so my kids have been having epic battles between good and evil all over the house. I don't know if I should be concerned that two out of three of them have gone over to the dark side.

My son is a privileged kid, as he will be having birthday cupcakes with his class on the first day of kindergarten. How's that for a first impression? I'm extra privileged because I get to work a 13 hour shift on Saturday, host a party on Sunday evening, get the kids off to school on Monday morning, then show back up a few hours later with Darth Vader cupcakes. I may need a caffeine IV to get through all of it. Hopefully the Force will be with me. Have a good weekend, y'all!


  1. My son would LOVE that party. He's deeply in love with Star Wars again. I think that we might have a Clone Trooper or two around here for Halloween.

    I hope you survive it all!

  2. can I come to that party? I have the perfect T-shirt to wear

  3. Yay for a Star Wars party! He can help egg Myatt on with the growing obsession when we come visit next weekend. NEXT WEEKEND! YAY!

  4. It sounds like a great party! How did it go? I think I want a light saber!!

    Hope everything goes well today. Have fun! (And try to breathe a little too, that's always good.)
