It's My Party And I'll Cry If I Want To

Today is my birthday, so I treated myself  to an afternoon nap and Lifetime Movie before picking Eli up from daycare.  Good thing, because he proved challenging this evening.

 For starters, he bit the glass tip off a thermometer.  Luckily, it didn't contain mercury, nor did it cut him.  Nonetheless, I called our pediatrician who walked me through how to handle the situation. 

No sooner had I dodged that bullet than my accident prone boy got an extremely minor carpet run.  So, in true two-year-old fashion he cried for about 45 minutes and refused to get out of my lap.

By this point, we decided that a restaurant dinner would be too risky, so we cooked some delicious Hamburger Helper. Ha...what can I say, we know how to celebrate!

Well, Eli's charming behavior continued after dinner when he threw a Hot Wheels cars at the TV and broke several pixels.  This resulted in a martial mishap, about 100 cars being tossed in the trash (don't worry we got them out later) and an extra early bedtime.

We are going to attempt a post - party, party tomorrow.  Needless to say, this is a birthday I'll never forget!!
