It was glorious.
Jack turned ONE on Friday. (And he had his picture taken by the lovely Lacey Bright.)
He is the handsomest guy I’ve ever seen.
I am completely in love with him.
I am grateful every day to be his mom.
He got to smash a Superman cake up at his photo session, and again at home.
(I made him one of his very own.)
(Described in the style of If You Give A Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff.)
If you give a wife a weekend at one of her favorite places…
…she’ll want the kids to go along. So, you’ll rent a cottage.
When you arrive, the kids will remind you that cottage guests can swim in the pool at the lodge. You’ll go there after you check in.
You’ll feel thankful you asked your mother-in-law to come along and help with the kids. You’ll send her to the spa for a massage and pedicure the next morning. Your wife will want to go with her.
The kids will want to go somewhere special, too. You’ll take them to ride horses.
When the rides are finished, they’ll want to go to the zoo. But it will be very cold and windy. So you’ll visit The Children’s Museum instead.
When the museum closes, the kids will be very hungry and tired. You’ll order them pizza and buy the movie Frozen on iTunes so they can watch it with their grandma at the cottage while you, finally, get to take your wife out, just the two of you.
While you’re out, you’ll reminisce about the past ten years. You’ll talk about the kids. Talking about the kids will make your wife miss them. And chances are, she’ll want to go back to the cottage so you can share the rest of your anniversary with them, too.
