We joined Kaspar for an early birthday celebration at his school this morning. (He's actually turning three on Monday). Aaron and I shared photos and stories from when Kas was one and two, his class sang him a song as he "walked around the sun" three times, and he proudly distributed his homemade (hypoallergenic) chocolate chip cookies to his friends and teachers. It was pure sweetness.
In other news, I've been sick for a week! (Don't worry, I'm not contagious at this point; those cute kiddos won't get sick on my account!) We'll get back to our regularly scheduled programming here on Alt-Mama just as soon as I'm feeling halfway normal again. ... Which better happen soon. Sheesh.
Here's hoping everyone had a wonderful holiday! We sure did. It wasn't quite as low key as we'd planned in terms of the presents (Kaspar scored), but hey, what can I say? Santa loves on the littles. Kas loved every minute of it, opening one gift after another and quickly realizing that Christmas is the most awesome thing ever. He was too jazzed up to nap at noon, and by 3 PM went into synapse overload as he tried to prioritize his playtime game plan (Spiderman first? Pickup truck? Cutting with kid scissors? HOW CAN YOU CHOOSE?), so we headed out for a walk in some cold, windy weather, and then -- back home -- hunkered down with some Charlie Brown while Aaron cooked up Christmas Chilaquiles. It was beeeoootiful.
