I get joy from my children almost every day, but one thing that is really so super awesome fantastic about little kids is how much they enjoy holidays. Anabella really “got” July 4th this year, which made it my best July 4th in at least a decade. (My last awesome July 4th included me losing my hearing for about two weeks, but that’s another post.)
My friend Stasa threw a great party, complete with babysitters and lots of activities for the kiddos. And she lives about a block away from the location of the biggest fireworks in Houston, so it couldn’t have been a better evening. Anabella discovered her love of glow-in-the-dark jewelry and fire, in the form of sparklers …
… and we had an incredible view of the fireworks display. (Sorry, but iPhone isn’t equipped for that kind of photography.)
P.S. What’s Scarlett balancing on her head today? A box of mac & cheese, of course.
I was hoping today would be all flowers and sunshine and rainbows …. especially after the events of last week, but instead it was just more blah and scorching 100+ degree weather.
I know you will all be excited for this new, but probably short-lived, feature at The B.S. Cafe. Scarlett hit 21 months, and she was so OVER sitting on things.
Her new favorite hobby is trying to balance things on her head. Stay tuned.
— The B.S. Cafe is now serving a big sigh of relief. I’m still employed … for now.
