Spit up and boogie...

The_kids I need some sleep! I don’t know how my sister, Becky, and her husband, Steve, do it. I spent the weekend at their house celebrating Paddy’s third birthday and getting some primo cuddle time with my beautiful twinkie nieces, Maddy and Katy. (There was also a little thing called the Chicago Triathlon in there, but I’ll save that for another day.)

Everything in my suitcase is covered in baby barf and I couldn’t be happier. If I didn’t have a twinkie on my shoulder, I was playing with the Paddy-man. Or hanging out with my Mom, my Aunt Beth who came for the weekend too and her friend Pat, and Steve’s parents, Pat and Phil.

Becky and Steve also managed in there to throw a b-day party on Saturday for about 30 people, at least 10 of which were under the age of 5. Becky even sewed Spiderman capes for all the kiddos to match Paddy’s Spidey cake and decorations.  And, while I’m usually a nutball running around whenever I have people over, Becky took me to her local YMCA that morning to take her favorite Group Groove dance class. We boogied our buns off.

I don’t know how they do it -- they’re superheroes. I’m just plain lazy.

I’m also in Montgomery, Alabama right now, so if I don’t have another chance to write, have a great holiday everyone!
