Ya'll may remember early last year, this post about my new cousin, Brooklyn.
On February 5, she turned 1. WOW. I cannot believe she is a whole year old.
Her party was this past Saturday. Catie and I decorated. And may I just say that decorating with a one year old is NOT FUCKING FUN. But we did it. And it turned out really great. But, I must share this wee bitty funny with you...
Poor Catie was so stressed, we were behind schedule. Brad (the fiance and father) went to pick up the cakes and food and stuff, so we were left with Brooklyn. We finished with the tables and streamers and everything, then we started blowing up balloons. After about the 40th balloon, Catie starts tying string to them. Then lets it go. She looks at me, positively HORRIFIED and says, "Why are they not staying up?! I need them to stay up!!" I just looked at her, completely speechless. Then her eyes started to tear up a little bit (mind you, she was QUITE stressed about the party) I said, "Caycay, you have to have helium if you want them to 'stay up'." Then I couldn't help it, I burst into laughter and she started laughing. We ended up taping and tying them to the walls. It worked. What can I say.
She will NEVER live that down.
