I'm on a blogging blah and don't have a whole lot of profound things to complain about. This doesn't mean i haven't been busy with life.
Amelie turned the big 4 a few weeks ago. We left most of the planning to the bday girl, and she decided on a pajama princess party. She gave us a guest list that included about a dozen friends, most from her school. We also decided to let parents do the ole drop-n-run. All in all, it was a success. The only tears were fleeting when it was realized by few that there were not enough prizes for everyone (Welcome to life, it isn't fair). The kids were well behaved and had a great time. There was only one "You can't tell me what to do, you're not my mom!" moment (which is funny coming from the girl with two dads).
Amelie got a grandmother-made princess dress that was definately the highlight. The picture below is taken from the back, because my mother unknowingly sewed it with a plunging neckline, that exposes her nipples. My mother, who doesn't get bothered by much, called me on two separate occasions to ensure amelie did not leave the house with her nipples showing and made me promise i would put a shirt undernieth until it was fixed.
