today was my nephew brayden’s first birthday. i had to work, but afterward went to my mom’s house for a birthday party for him with my immediate family and my sister’s in-laws (which translates to about 5 other kids 18 and younger). this means i walked into chaos. after pizza and presents, brayden got his own personal cake to destroy:after all that total insanity of what seemed to be 37 kids running around and screaming and crying and icing flying and tissue paper crinkling underfoot and sugar highs and full pizza stomach lows, this is where i want to be:for about a week. that should do it.
