Time speeds like an overloaded freight train with faulty brakes

I just realised that in exactly three weeks time it will be The Little Madam's (TLM) birthday.

Where did the time go?

It seems like only a couple of minutes sonce I had to support my baby's head whenever I lifted her.

On the other hand, Life Before The Baby feels like decades ago (especially for the boy, who wonders whether my libido has emigrated to sunnier, more decadent shores).

This brings me to the question of whether to hold a birthday party for TLM. I was thinking it would be nice to have a little lunch or afternoon tea thing with just the immediate family. It would be an opportunity for TLM's first cake experience (and if she's anything like me, it'll be the first of many).

But it's only three weeks away, and it takes that long just for me to get around to cleaning the trackmarks off the toilet bowl (I did tell you that there've been lurgies in the house).

I think you should have a party. Just tell your guests the track marks are from a failed chocolate icing attempt which you threw in the toilet in a fit of rage and flushed.
You know, I should write a cleaning book for parents..

You just need a close-up photo of her with a cake, in years to come tell her there was a big party in the background.

happy and blue 2: yes, you could certainly fill a book with housekeeping advice, alright ;-)

editter: we could do this every year until she gets to about five!

Have a party! They're family, then can bring the cake and do any cleaning required.
