But Wait! There's More!

And now it's time for another birthday in my family's summertime sequence of soirees: today is the lad's birthday! He is now three, which means he's finally eligible for all those toys labeled three and up. It's the toddler equivalent of turning 16, as far as I can tell.

At any rate, his party was this weekend, and well attended by family and friends. Sadly, this is almost certainly the last year we can get away with that. Next year he'll probably want to invite all of his friends from school over, and they'll eat cake and drink soda and sing Happy Birthday and play games and smash piƱatas and have pony rides and pet bunnies and jump in a bouncy castle and armwrestle monkeys and run and run and run and run and run, all the while Mommy and Daddy quietly nod and smile and resume our self-medicating.
