It was a day he'll never remember

The Bodester had his birthday party today, tomorrow's the real day but that'll just be our little secret. I'll tell ya, remote control themed parties are hard to come by. They just don't make plates and napkins with the Cox Digital cable remote very easy to find these days.












I would go on and on about how I can't believe my baby is one, and I can't, but today also marks my very first urinary track and kidney infections simultaneously so I'm really not in the mood. I almost made it through the party but finally I couldn't take it anymore and ran out of the house and drove around like a crazed lunatic until I found an urgent care clinic. For some reason August 16th seems to always include me writhing in pain. I can't wait for next year! On this day last year I went to bed ready for a nice c-section the next morning and at 11:00 PM was jolted out of bed with what I thought was my stomach ripping open. Turns out it was just a huge contraction, followed by my water breaking, followed by a very "intense" ride to the hospital, and finally a couple of hours later Bode came into the world screaming like a wild man. And he has been a wild man ever since. A wonderful, remote control obsessed, 9-1-1 calling, fire alarm tripping wild man. It's been quite a ride...

Cute cake!! Hey, I have an UTI too! Did they give you the drugs that change your pee color. Pretty cool for parties.

That cake is so cute!! Did you make that? If so it's really going to damage my self esteem. Break out the cranberry juice poor girl.

Hope you're feeling better. That cake is incredible... leaving me feeling a little inadequate in the world of first birthday parties!

Too bad you weren't feeling well, but I know it was still a great day for your family! Did you make the cake? I love it! BTW, my birthday is today too! I already share my birthday with several others! I'm glad to add Bode to the group! Happy Birthday Little Guy!
