today is my son's 3rd birthday! woohoo!! i'll try to take some pics of the wrapped presents before he tears into them and the plates and hats and streamers before we get them up. daddy has school for a few hours today, so i'm going to make my kid take a nap (or at least gate him in his room) so we can decorate for him when daddys gets home. and on his way home, he's stopping off at carvel's to pick up the ice cream cake we had designed for him. its a 3D race car cake (not a flat cake) that looks like lightning mcqueen! i cant wait to see it! i will show u all before we dig into it haha! i got the lil guy a quee (pronouced 'key'. that's what he calls mcqueen) candle for his cake, u can see the quee pinata that he WILL NOT TOUCH!! u should have seen the spongebob pinata he got last year after he got ahold of it. poor spongebob lost his arms and feet, his eyes and all his yellow paper. *sigh* it was not pretty. we had to put him down. so this year that kid is NOT touching quee. we will hang him in his room. up high.
i must say i do think it's amazing that when most kids grow out of their phases of favorites, my kid still loves 'cars.' he will watch that movie over and over and over again. he quotes it. he sings the songs. he even acts out the parts of the movie with his quee and mack and chick hicks and the king. do u think he's been overexposed to 'cars?' he has his 'cars' tv, blankets, toys, table and chairs, more chairs, cups, plates, dinnerware, clothes, jammies. he uses them, plays with them, HAS to have mack to sleep at night, runs around in his quee slippers. i think its good he has one thing he loves so much. i think he might even find comfort in it. im ok with that. now if he STILL has quee when he is 16, then i might get worried! haha! but for now, my son has his one thing that he loves and needs. im happy he's got that attachment.
i'll post pics of the party and the cake and his presents after we celebrate!
