Since Brynlee's birthday is around the corner I've been planning a b day party for her. Nothing too fancy. But you can't turn 2 without having a party! I was chatting with my friend the other day who is a stay at home Mom. She was showing me the stuff she is planning for her son's birthday party. She is super Mom. Literally. She is also a stay at home Mom, so I guess I can't compare.
But she has a garden ( in which she manages to keep things alive), she sews, she coupons she play groups. She does everything I wish I could basically. She is super organized and super on the ball. The stuff she is planning for her son's birthday is nuts. Crazy nuts.
This is not a post where I ramble on and on about feeling sorry for myself. But it's times like this when I think "Oh boy". Sorry Brynlee, I guess you pulled the short straw getting stuck with me. Because my flowers are dying slowly but surely, I clip coupons and then lose them, I just about lose everything due to my lack of organization, and am lazy when it comes to things like birthday party planning. If my friend is Super Mom then the name Space Mom (because I'm more often than not out to lunch these days) or Messy Mom (because my house like my car like my room like my mind is one giant mess) applies to me.
Well not with this party. Not this time. Limited by financial issues but nevertheless determined, I'm actually working diligently on Brynlee's party. I'm making decorations, I'm planning things out. I'm trying to be organized. Yes miracles do happen. Don't expect this party to look like something out of Martha Stewart magazine or anything. But I'm hoping a few personal touches will bring things together. I don't have a lot of space, and I don't have a lot of creativity with this kind of thing. But I'm trying. And it's actually pretty fun.
IF I ever actually become a stay at home Mom, I wonder if I'll ever get it together. Probably not. A zebra will never change his stripes after all. But maybe I'll be a little more on it. Maybe.
One small step for moms in school, one huge step for me!
Waiting for James to arrive!
