La la la-la! La la la-la!

I need you to sit down before you read the next sentence because when this thought crossed my mind the room started spinning and I got all light-headed... In about 3 weeks we will have a 2 year old. (Take a moment. Breathe. Breeeaaathe.) Insane, isn't it? There are so many thoughts that go through my mind when I consider that 2 whole YEARS have passed since I met my little Cashers. It seems like it all just happened. But maybe thats because I relive it every night when I go check on him before I go to bed, or when he flashes his ornery grin at me, and definitely when I get a precious little "Ooo rah!" before bedtime. (sigh)
Cash has just recently become interested in television. Thankfully his one and only favorite show is Sesame Street - one that I find completely tolerable and occasionally hilarious! (Paul Rudd was just on last week. Hysterical!) He LOVES when that furry little red monster comes on the screen and without fail, jumps on our ottoman to "play the piano" with Elmo during his closing number. Then he hands me the remote and says, "More Elmo!". (Children these days. Blessed with the technology to rewind live television.) I'm not even ashamed to say we watch 2 episodes of Sesame Street back to back every single morning.
I've always had an aversion to kids items with TV characters on them. I'm just not a huge fan. But when your kid loves something...you don't really care. And so birthday party #2 will be all things Elmo! I just placed my order for Elmo invites, and cone party hats. There will be a cake in the shape of Elmo's face, and Elmo party packs for the kiddies!
And so the countdown to ElmoPalooza begins!!! It'll be rockin'!
