Last week, while I was working on Roman’s 3rd Birthday post, I took a little trip down memory lane. I found myself swooning over pictures from his first birthday party and comparing them with those from Marina’s. It really is overwhelming to think that both of my babies’ first birthday parties are behind me.
I don’t think that I will be having any more children and watching these milestones slip by is sometimes too much for my mama heart to handle. I try so hard to cherish all of these precious moments while they’re here because I know too well just how quickly it will all go. It feels like I blinked and Roman turned three. I know that I will blink again and he’ll be ten, and then twenty-one, and so on.
I find myself writing on this topic, of how fast it all goes, quite often. I suppose that when I think about motherhood, it’s just the thing that always comes into my mind. Children are the most beautiful reminder of how precious life is, and also how fleeting.
I’ve said it before, but it’s always worth repeating how much I love to throw special parties for my little ones. I’ve been asked about why I put so much time and effort into parties for such little babies, but I know that one day soon, I won’t have any say in the matter. My littles will have ideas of their own about how their parties should be. Scarier yet, I know that one day I won’t even be on the invite list. So you can bet that I’ll be cherishing every moment of these special tiny birthday parties while I still can.
BRU has always been my one-stop-shop for many of my birthday party needs. We’ve always trusted Pampers for a leak-free day (birthday or not!), and I depend on Dreft to be gentle for my babies, but tough enough to remove those pesky smash cake stains. Both products can be found at your local BRU. From June 1-25, BRU is running a promotion on both products, stop in and check that out.
Babies “R” Us is always there to celebrate all of your milestones, especially your baby’s first birthday! BRU stores across the country are hosting a “Baby’s First Birthday” event on June 25 from 11am-12pm. From 6/1-6/25: PAMPERS VALUE BOXES OF WIPES (800CT) are just $19.99. Head in to prepare and celebrate this milestone with fun activities, prizes & giveaways and inspiration for planning baby’s big day.
