I’ve gone plane birthday party crazy.

So, this is what I’ve been doing all evening. I’ve become obsessed with planning my kid’s second birthday party, which is going to be an airplane-themed party. This change in plans means I won’t be making a cat cake this year. I’ll save the cat cake for later. Maybe for my wedding (which is less than two months away)!

You know what makes more sense than a claustrophobic person who doesn’t fly planning an airplane-themed birthday party? Pretty much everything. But Soren loves airplanes. Every time he sees an airplane, he smiles, points, and says “Airplane!” Then “Bye bye!” When we’re inside and he can hear but not see an airplane, he says “Airplane!” It’s pretty cute.

Don’t worry — I plan to do as much as possible myself and not go overboard. I promise.
