A few week's ago, I helped my friend, Emily Kate, celebrate her 3rd birthday.
Emily Kate and I have gotten to be good friends this year at Miss Toni's house, but our parents have been friends for a long, long time. My daddy and Emily Kate's daddy were even roommates for a while!
Here's a pic of the birthday girl playing "Pin the Hat on the Polar Bear". EK was really great at that game!
I wish that I could say I was more than happy to jump in on the party-gaming fun...but that would be a lie. While the other kids were playing their hearts out, I was glued to Mommy's lap with the occasional tear streaming down my cheek. Anyone who tried to cheer me up was met with a quick grumpy-brow-furrow!
I did perk up a little bit when I noticed this super fun Fisher-Price dollhouse...
but I didn't really become myself until the cake and ice cream were served!
It was at about this point that Mommy realized I hadn't eaten lunch that day. I went down for my nap earlier than usual so that I wouldn't have to be woken up mid-nap to go to the party...but when I did wake up Mommy completely forgot to put a little yummy in my tummy. Think that explains the teary eyes during game time?
I was finally getting warmed up right when the party came to a close. Thankfully, the warmup came just in time for my mommy, EK's mommy, and EK's grandparents to snap a few shots of the two of us playing a little duet on our 'flutes'.
Happy Birthday, Emily Kate!
Maybe next year Mommy will remember to feed me before your party.
