Rode Hard And Put Up Wet…

I guess I should’ve been prepared for the whirlwind couple of days that is Halloween followed two days later by the birthday hullabaloo but it must have been easier when Sofia was younger. It was all fun for her but too many “special” events packed into 3 days, plus candy, plus presents, cake, parties… it all wore her little butt out and of course I was worn out before it even happened. Thankfully today we resume our ordinary existence until the Thanksgiving rigmarole… there’s still the sorting of the booty, candy and presents but we don’t have to be anywhere or do anything.

    Yeah, I saw the NYT thing just after you posted, coincidence!

    Happy Birthday Sofia! They get big too fast dont they?
