on Saturday we celebrated a very special first birthday. it was at roxbury park in beverly hills with a playground nearby, lots of food, toys and bubbles for the kids. and honestly… it was SO SO FUN. it’s kinda weird that these are my weekends now…but that’s life huh? lol kid birthday parties are FUN since i know C will have fun, there will be kid appropriate food, and mike and i get to socialize with adults who understand if C has a meltdown, if she refuses to eat or play or do whatever, and there’s always a mom with an extra wipe or diaper. =) plus one super random thing…parents are quick to catch a falling cup, child, object or even divert C’s attention if she’s getting fussy. So it’s really nice to be surrounded by that when Mike and I are so tired. hahaha Community Parenting?
For the last 7-8 years I have become really close to my co-workers from my previous department. In the years that we’ve known each other we got married, had babies and more babies. Growig together in both our professional and personal lives has meant SO MUCH. Really helps put things into perspective when I dream of staying home w C or when something big happens in the UCLA world. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of friends. <3
Same with slides! SO SO good for their development since they have to figure out the physical balance it takes to go down and not fall off or over. my silly silly girl. we pretend she’s disappeared when she puts on sunglasses and she thinks it’s HILARIOUS and we think it’s just darling. <3
