It's Spring Party Week!

It looks like the Easter Bunny threw up in the back of my jeep. Yes, that’s right…it’s spring party week again! So not only did I have to slug it out with the other “last minute mommies” at our local Target AND Wal-Mart but I need to make 22 treat bags for my middle son’s class party. No big deal, right? Not when your three-year-old wants to help you by sampling all the candy.

After drop off tomorrow(a two trip ordeal), I have to rush home to make 20 fresh bunny shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for my three-year-olds class party at 10:30. Oh, and I forgot about those cute little bunny cupcakes with the marshmallow ears and candy noses and the tinted coconut fur…I have to make those for a family party this weekend. This last thing though, is my own fault. It was one of those Martha Stewart/Superwoman volunteer moments that ended with “of course I have time, I’m not busy at all.”

It is times like these I question my sanity. Ok, well more than usual.

But it’s cool, it usually works itself out. As long as I don’t get all stressed and act crazy (i.e. embarrass myself or my kids). That is why today I want to encourage my awesome readers to remember to take a little time each day to relax. Even if you can only sneak away for a minute (you can even hide in the bathroom- I do sometimes) just take a few deep breaths, focus, regroup and be thankful.

Because before you know it (and I speak from experience here) the parties will be over. Well, the school ones anyway. I’m sure if I showed up at the high school with treat bags and bunny cupcakes my 15-year-old would hide under a chair.

Hmmm, I’ll have to remember that the next time she gets into trouble.

Have a great day tomorrow!

That's a lot of baking/sandwich making/martha madness. Good luck! I'm all stressed out because I'm making a walnut cake for Sunday. Ha!
