ATLINS OWENS 6TH BIRTHDAY WISH

Well, well, WELL!  

It is that time of year again and the culmination of ALL of my party planning efforts for my son, Atlin's, birthday party proved to be a HUGE success! [IMG]/images/capatin%20america.jpg[/IMG]

Now look, having a birthday party is a full scale production, people, and when it is your son's birthday party?

Forget about it! We are going IN! 

But before the festivities began this past Saturday, the drama of course had to unfurl as we worked hard to get ready for Tot Fest 2012! 

First, the guest bathroom completely TOILET broke down the night before. Then, at 6:45am the morning of the party, I awoke not to the sound of my super excited little boy raving about his party, but the voice of the "Wow Party” rental company telling me they cannot bring our pre-ordered Incredible Hulk bouncer and that I had to choose another option within 15 minutes so they could get one to us in time!

[B]GRRR![/B] Let the challenges of the day commence! 

Having to face the stress of everyday life as a single mom and a professional, one would assume I can handle a child's birthday party, right? 

Yessir!

Having been up early to handle the plumbing issue in the guest bathroom (imagine a host of kids at a birthday party and there's no bathroom...not good...), I was already in the process of getting a toilet from the local Do It Center, and thanks to the "Trust Plumbing" company, they saved the day! (Note to self, next option would have been a portable potty...and at a kids party that could be bad news...).

Crises number 1 and 2 of the day? Averted! We were back on course and full speed ahead in Samelia'sWorld!

Like any parent, I always want the things I plan for Atlin to go well. 

My son has never had his father attend any of his birthday parties due to his absence over the past several years, as everyone already knows. That was first on his little birthday "wish" list. Even with all of the chaos surrounding Terrell and I have in our lives, this year his NFL career wouldn't be in the way and one would assume the superstar who goes by the name of "T.O." would not be a "No Show" for his son’s special event…

Then, there is the "wish" of fulfilling the dream of Atlin’s theme for his party.

And, back to the nightmare we go! 

Mr. Captain America, straight from Birthday Party Characters, was supposed to be the host, entertainment and theme of the party. BUT HE DID NOT CALL NOR DID HE SHOW UP!!! How crazy is that? SERIOUSLY???

In steps superstar Stacy Rosas, who stepped in and thanks to her AMAZING face painting skills (and you know as a professional makeup artist how critical I am of this- yes, even at a kids party!), the kids looked outstanding! My friends were all wonderful for stepping up in the entertainment department. And wouldn't you know, the [LINK=/wowpartyrental.com]Wow Party rental[/LINK] came through with the jumper!

We were on our way!

Now what would a kids party be without food? And when you're feeding a mass of children (and adults for that matter), you have to FEED them! So a big shout out to "[LINK=http://www.161pizza.com]161 STREET PIZZA[/LINK]". They provided the NEW YORK STYLE variety of pizza (Atlin's FAVORITE) and did a superb up job! From the fresh mozzarella, BBQ chicken, and even making a GLUTEN FREE VEGAN PIZZA, what else could yours truly ask for! Thank you Matt and all the 161 Street Pizza family!

Has Blogging Become One Big Chore?

Have you ever looked at your blog’s dashboard and whimpered to yourself, “Oh, I just cannot in any way, shape, or form write a blog post today?”
