Happy happy weekend!
We have big plans this weekend. We are making up for the whole “no plans last weekend” thing that we had going on.
First, we have a birthday party for a seven year old today. We go to this kid’s birthday party every year because we are super good friends with his parents. We are practically related. But we’re not. But we say that we are and the birthday boy calls me uncle, and he calls my hubby auntie.
No, I didn’t mess up. It started out as a joke eons ago and now it has stuck. I think it is hilarious! I’m Uncle Kristin.
Not to be confused with Uncle Kracker.
Then, on Sunday, we have a big shindig over at my parent’s house because my niece is home for the weekend from Sonoma and my nephew turned 16.
I am old. So so so old. Because my nephew was just a baby. And I was a baby and I never wanted to babysit him because he was a bad baby. Really. Once, my sisters and my mom left me with him and went to Target. How I agreed to this I’ll never know. Anyways, Jake – my nephew – cried the entire time. I ended up having to take off his little onesie because he had worked himself up into such a tizzy that he was all red and sweaty and blotchy. When they got home, I said I’m never watching this kid again until he is old enough to be bribed with candy.
Now he is sixteen so I can definitely babysit him.
