MMG: Mayhem's Third Birthday!

During the early part of this weekend, our family dealt with a bit of a stomach bug. Luckily, we all recovered quickly. Friday, Little J stayed home from school and I stayed home sick from work. I was concerned, because we had Mayhem's birthday party on Sunday. But it all worked out in the end.

Saturday - LEGO Movie. Saturday morning we had a soccer game, and then we all went to see the LEGO movie. It was surprisingly good! I laughed out loud several times. We had to sit in the 3rd row, because the matinee was packed! The movie is great, because it's full of action for the kids but they definitely didn't forget about the adults that would be watching. Apparently, it was a huge success and made over $69 million this weekend alone. I highly recommend it!

Sunday- Mayhem's Third Birthday! We had his birthday at the location where he does his tumbling class. I think the kids had a great time, and the entire party felt like the blink of an eye. My favorite part was the cupcakes, I think they came out adorable. The birthday boy enjoyed them, and all his friends! His theme was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and he LOVED all his TMNT themed gifts!

And then, we didn't give the birthday boy his pacifier to go to sleep. I know that sounds awful and mean (which is exactly how I felt!), but we tried to focus on his wonderful birthday and how he is a big boy now. He didn't care. He wanted his paci. He cried for an hour. We kept going in there to calm him down, but he just wanted paci. "My mouth is cold" was his last ditch effort to get me to give it to him. I cried. He cried. It was really, really, really difficult. I felt like the meanest mommy ever for doing that on his birthday. I can only hope that tonight is easier!

How was your weekend?
