I’m using a little reverse psychology with that blog title…I’m thinking that if I entitle this post that way, rather than “The Terrible Twos” maybe I can will the “terrific” part into being, because as you can see.... (yes, that is a box of dish detergent and the next photo is of Beau after he snuck a couple of Oreo cookies) we’re already off to a rough start.
So, as if you couldn’t tell (by the above photos or even by my lack of blog posting lately), life around the Brookshire household has been chaos. We have celebrated two birthdays in the past week – mine (I celebrated the second anniversary of my 29th birthday – long live 29!!) and Beau’s.Poor Beau is obviously my second child. One can tell by the low key birthday I just threw him. Usually I send out cute invitations, this time it was a tacky Facebook invite and phone calls. Normally, I would buy balloons and a piñata, this time I stuck with the idea that swimming and playing outside was enough entertainment for everyone.
Maybe one day Beau will be mad at me for not throwing him a bigger party but for now, he doesn’t even remember what happened an hour ago.
