You Know You've Changed When...

You Know You've Changed When...

1. Planning a birthday party is no longer filled with anxiety about not having enough alcohol...but is replaced with anxiety about what the heck the kids coming to the party will do to entertain themselves!

2. You normally would spend all your time trying to look tan, get your hair and nails done, find an outfit that ROCKS to wear to the party...complete with 3 inch heels (or higher)...and that is now replaced with wondering what you will find to wear that will go with flip flops, hope your hair turns out half-way decent but will probably be in a pony tail early on, and forget the nails...but maybe a pedicure...if you have time.

3. You use to spend days and weeks (okay...honestly...I use to spend months)planning a party, filled with decorations, music, evites AND invites, food and everything else....only to realize that now you barely have time to even make a cake (in fact don't have time to make a cake - you are buying one), and the decorations for this birthday party will be VERY pink. Nothing has been bought (minus decorations) and it's getting close when before...it would all be done by now!

4. You usually worry about having enough room to host the big crowd of people that are coming that you know will want to dance. You usually worry about clearing all the furniture out to make enough room and hope no one pukes or spills alcohol anywhere on your carpet. That is now replaced with the thought of "I hope people won't trip over all these toys that I am not about to clean up!"

5. And the BIGGEST thing that made me realize I have changed...

You use to want a REALLY cool birthday gift...diamonds...expensive purse...nice shoes...something AWESOME...

and that is now replaced by wanting...

a new diaper bag! :)
