This week, I'm also preparing to shepherd eight or nine little 2-3 year old souls through a week of Vacation Bible School.
So, I mean, why not also plan an elaborate birthday party for my son. WHY NOT? Well, there are lots of reasons...but I ignored them all, because the only thing that usually gets me off my flour-covered butt is having a bit too much on my plate. "I work best under pressure," is a cliche for a reason I guess...aha!
I'm pretty proud that everyone in this house has eaten, bathed and gotten sleep this week - major accomplishments for this over-extended mommy. And I'm extra proud that I went a little beyond and got the foundation laid for Andrew's third birthday cake.

I have a dream...and that dream is to see the number one engine on Sodor chug into my kid's party and make him smile. After I see that, then I will collapse in a chair, start planning next year's cake and hope that we keep this lovely mayhem going a little while longer.
