hey party people....

in case you didn't know- it's spring break 09'. i looked at the calendar this morning and saw that my 22 month old daughter is now officially on her first spring break. one week, that can have so many connotations....
10 yrs ago, i would have been stepping off the plane into mexico w/ 10 of my bff's- all w/ glowing tans from a month of preplanned tanning bed visits...i can't help but wonder how we constantly pulled this off w/ our parents?? twenty yr old girls downing frozen drinks like we had no tomorrow, yelling at men in sombreros to bring their whistles over and pour mysterious blue tequila shots into our mouths, dancing the night away in sweaty clubs w/ foam parties...
i glance over at little innocent tay shoveling her raisin bran into her mouth...i smile knowing the only dancing she will be doing this week is to the 'rompa stomp stomp' by the wiggles and the only chugging will be in form of whole milk...and thank God that i have 15+ yrs to prepare...

You have a BEAUTIFUl daughter!! Perspective is a good thing to have! You don't always have to give up the things you love. I have a 2 and a half year old with my wife and I do foam parties for a living. Kinda odd, I know, but the next time I'm in the Carolina's I'll try and give you a shout. I do foam parties for little kids too!! They LOVE it!! It doesn't get very deep, but you have never seen smiles like that EVER!! It warms you from the inside out!

I totally understand, I have a 2 year old daughter & when I think about the stuff I used to get up too... It makes me feel sick with worry, not looking forward to the teenage years, at all!

Oh, well, you are right, so many more new points of view.
My daughter just turned twelfe and I found this age to be the new 15, get ready soon...
Tay is lovely, enjoy the age of innocence!
