Finally, a good weekend.

For the first time in a very long time I have no complaints about the weekend. Well, of course it ended way too fast but that is only natural. We had a good time Friday night watching tv and I think a movie but my memory doesn't really go back that far! My 20's were way too good for me and has killed a few too many brain cells so now I am dealing with a crappy memory.

Yesterday I got my new picture for my PA license. Hard to believe I have been here 4 years and will be turning 31 later this week. I have the old pic and the new one, doesn't even look like the same person. Of course shopping is always in order for having to do the crappy picture anyways. We head over to Babies R Us to return yet another stairway gate that will not fit the top of the stairs -- I think we have officially given up at this point. Cait can get down all on her own and when she gets old enough to be out of her crib we will just get a gate for her door. Even when we do that I am pretty sure she will know how to get out of it a hell of alot easier than we will. What is a Real Mom to do? I am open for suggestions! lol ** We ended up getting her a new Umbrella Stroller - Chicco C-6 I think it is.

So, we get back home and Cait actually takes a decent afternoon nap. Our Brandywine Club party started at 7pm. Miss Cait walked to the neighbors house and proceeded to have a wonderful time. I think I counted around 15 kids. They had set up a little Easter Egg hunt in the basement, she was more interested in watching the older kids do the hunt but she came out with 4 eggs! We let her play until 8:20 and her Dad walked back home with her and put her down for the night. It was my turn to stay later and I ended up strolling home at 10pm. We have the best neighbors, such a crazy crew and so many things to learn from each and every one of them. I look forward to hanging out with them once a month.

Today was pretty good too. We went to Cait's cousins 1st birthday party. Of course Q's family was there and it was loud and smelly. Let me elaborate a bit on the loud and smelly part -- they are Viet and love loud Viet music (typically kareoke) plus bring on the ethnic food! Before I had Cait I was able to stomach the food but now it truly kills me. I have such horrible gas! When we got there Miss Caity Cait did her 15 min cling to me deal and after that she was running around like a mad woman. We didn't put her hearing aids on since everything was so loud and quite honestly not much was said in English. If you are reading this and know me pretty well, this situation used to royally piss me off. I would sit there and have nothing to do and not be involved in any conversations but since Cait came along it is all tolerable since I have her to keep me company.

It is time for me to fold the clean laundry and go to bed. I am thankful that my husband did all the cleaning this week and has been a good Dad to Cait. Plus, after a 2 month drought I finally got some -- twice!

Are you shocked that I am not posting any pictures?! Maybe tomorrow.
