Someone's Turning Two And Somone's Mom Needs A Paper Bag


In 3 short weeks I will be the mother of a two year old and you can bet there will be some serious celebrating going on in the McGregor household. Thanks to some super cheap airfare Ash's MN fan club will be represented by grandmas, papas, and aunts (even a great grandma!) and we're looking forward to a day of celebrating complete with family and friends. And, I heard through the grapevine that the horse and goat as well as Miss Veronica from Musical Munchkins are likely to make an appearance as well! We're gearing up for what is sure to be one gigantic Ash love fest.

All of the above is handy dandy hunky dory, but then there's that mention of the paper bag in the title... Yup, you could say I'm breathing a bit quickly over aforementioned fiesta. Not that I'm a stranger to throwing parties, but this one's different. People are getting on airplanes, planning road trips, taking trains, and really going out of their way to gather together while Ash blows out his first birthday candles on NY soil. And. I. Want. Everything. To. Be. Perfect. And I have two and a half weeks to make that happen. Ready, Set, GO!

Oh, and to my faithful Blogland buddies who may happen to find themselves in the NY area the first weekend in May, consider this your official invite!

And here I figured the paper bag was needed because you weren't ready for Ash to be a big boy. Glad you are okay with THAT part of the festivities!!

Ah yes, that part of it is a whole other ballgame and is likely to send my head spinning, so for now I'm going to just stay focused on making the day as special as possible for him. It's much more fun to plan a party (even if it requires the help of a paper bag every now and then) than face the "big boy" reality!

Sounds ridiculously fun!! Now get to work. I'm certain that you will make this a party to remember.

I'm sure it will be perfect. What matters most is just celebrating the PRECIOUS boy that Ashton is with his loving family and friends!

We need to conduct a serious consultation RE: cake!
