Kids Say the Cutest Things #1

Everyone knows kids say the cutest things (and sometimes not so cute)! Mine is no exception. The problem is that I rarely can remember the funny, the cute, and the not so cute things that comes out of my son's mouth. So I vowed to myself that I would start keeping a permanent record of his toddler "sayisms". So here goes with sayism #1:

Last night at bedtime while laying down with Zachary, he put his arm around my neck and pulled us cheek-to-cheek. Can I just say I love cuddling with my little one, who doesn't right? Well, after several minutes of us cheek -to-cheek, I figured his arm would start to get tired or go numb from my big head laying on top of it. Our conversation went like this:

Me: Z, do you want to take your arm out from under mommy?

Z: No.

Me: Ok. Why not?

Z: Because I don't want anyone to steal you. I want to always protect you (insert melting heart here).

Who can argue with that? So we proceeded to lay like that until he fell asleep. :)

Can you remember the cute things your child says? Do you try to keep a record of all the cute (and not so cute sayings)?

Vroom! Vroom! Cars Birthday Party (Part 1)

Who doesn't love Disney's Cars and birthday parties? :) Exactly, and my 4-year-old is no exception. This year I co-hosted a dual birthday party for my son and one of my dear friend's 3-year-old daughter. Zachary had been talking about "his Cars party" for months now so we were super excited when the day finally arrived!

I will also say that I'm also super glad that it is over!! Planning a party for 20+ kids is exhausting! Especially when you're a procrastinator like me who does most of the shopping and decor at the very last minute. Luckily, I had my friend (and co-hostess) helping me blow up balloons at 1 AM. Unfortunately, we didn't realize the helium would only last 8 hours, LOL. By the time I woke up they were sad and deflated, :(

Here are a couple of pics from the special day. We don't have the pics back from the photographer yet, so I will post them as soon as I get them. Can't wait!!

So glad I got to share this special day with my favorite 4-year-old and with family and friends!!

Best Halloween Ever!!

Well, according to my soon-to-be four year old. That was his line last night Trick or Treating... This is the Best Halloween Ever!

Not sure if that's because he got to wear his Spiderman costume for the 100th day in a row or the massive amounts of candy he got. Either way it was the Best Halloween Ever!
