I am sneaking in a few minutes to blog because it is Thane's night to put P down. So lets be real...I have like 30-40 minutes to blog.
A LOT has happened this year. Parker turned one. Tanya got married. We sold our duplex..that we have been trying to sell forever. I was able to live with my in-laws and get to know them better...and have my son spend more time with them. Bought a house. Katie got married. A few people I know got knocked up..and I'm ecstatic for them. Parker got a big boy bed, because you know..we need the crib.
For whenever the next kid comes along. HA! You thought for like 3 seconds I was going to say I'm pregnant didn't you? Heehee. Nope.
Thinking about getting pregnant for the second time is terrifying. Almost as scary as the first time around. It's amazing how many things change, and how quickly. I know people say you are never fully ready for the first one. Well, are you ever ready for the second one?
Not that we don't want more. My second kid is going to read this blog in like 11 years and be bawling thinking we didn't want them. We do! We do! You are just really really scary hunny. Mommy loves you.
So anyways. 2015 should be interesting. Already have some great things on the books.
Parker turns 2. TWO. What?
I have my first Pinterest Saturday coming up. Stoked.
A little thing called....SARA AND DOUG'S WEDDING! Also stoked.
You may be wondering how or why I am blogging at 10:03 on NYE. Well. Let me tell you. We have already had our excitement for the night.
We went to US Bank Eve at the Terrace. My lovely coworker went to the one at KEVA but I was skeptical and said "no no..the one downtown will be WAY better Amanda."
Man I hate when she is right. (said with love.)
We should have gone to KEVA. While the one we were at was great, I feel like it was for older kids.
We did try the bouncy house. P was pretty jacked up to go in. Jumping and laughing while we waited in line. He stepped foot inside...aaaaaaaaaaaaand lost it. Terrified. Screaming. Sobbing.
So, that ruled out the other 5 bouncey houses they had.
The train! They had a train. This kid loves trains.
Ya. "Children Only."
Oh ok....guess not.
There was a Bubble Show. This is what I was excited for! In my head I pictured like 70 bubble makers in a room just blasting bubbles. Parker was going to LOOOOVE it. Hell, I was going to love it.
Sadly, it was nothing like my imagination. It was a man. With some bubbles. Who talked. A lot.
There was a DJ..who I loved. He played "What Does the Fox Say?" and then "Shake it Off." right in a row! If I got married again...he'd be my guy.
Parker? Not so much. This is where he hung out the whole time...
All about the water. I picture him being that kid at a school dance who spikes the punch. Sigh.
We even had to have a picture with the water glass.
we danced...I danced to a few songs we decided to go.
but then Parker decided he need a few more rides and booked it for the escalators.
and we rode them up and down about 10 times. At least.
Then we did a lot of this...
We figured, Hey..if he is happy riding the escalators and running down the empty hallways..shit. It's New Years Eve...let's go crazy!
So to recap. There is a lot of room to run at the terrace. The water coolers are fantastic. The escalators are thrilling. And bouncy houses are scary.
P's favorite parts:
Happy 2015 to you and yours. Hope this year is great too you!
