This is a bit of an afterthought, but hey--since I'm now the blogging queen I thought all of my followers (ok--there aren't any yet) would love to see some pics of Robbie's Spiderman birthday party. I have to admit that I am one of those people that swears I will never put my kids in light-up Nemo shoes, let them wear a Wall-E sweatshirt, or carry a Diego backpack to school...but my almost three year-old specifically asked for a Spiderman birthday cake. To which, I replied, "Yes I know you think Spidey is cool, but don't you think a cowboy birthday party would be so cool?!" He answered, "No--I want a SPIDERMAN birthday cake." Well, what do you say to that? So we had a Spiderman birthday party, which I must say was quite a hit with the kiddos and Robbie loved it so I guess at some point you have to just swallow your pride and let your kid wear those dang light-up Elmo shoes (or in this case, have a giant inflatable Spiderman bounce house). So--that's what we did. Mona Lee and Papa Rob were generous enough to let us use their home for the party and only a couple fights broke out between the three year-olds over the gun/sword he got from Uncle Sean and Aunt Brecken so I'd say it was a hit. And a bonus: My sister and nephews were here from TX to enjoy the festivities.
I can't beleive my baby boy is 3 (his bday is Jan 12th). It wasn't long ago that I thought people with kids were boring and old and lived a somewhat pathetic existence...my how time changes things!
Oh--and PS, a few days before the party Robbie informed me that he didn't want Spiderman, he wanted Batman--NICE!
