Busy Week

We've officially hit insanity time in our neighborhood, as school winds down and all the obligatory parties and celebrations come with it.

This week alone, we've got Cora's end-of-year party (preschool ends three weeks earlier than public school) today, which unfortunately conflicts with Maddie's class kickball tournament, so I'm hitting Cora's party while Mom cheers Maddie on. As well this morning Cora is celebrating her upcoming birthday in her school - since it's after school is out - so this morning will find me bringing a dozen and a half mini-cupcakes to her class and reading one of her favorite books aloud while the four-year-olds get sugared up for the day.

Then tomorrow is Cora's preschool graduation, and yes, I rolled my eyes too. Before they started weeping when I watched Maddie "graduate" two years ago. So tomorrow's Cora's last day of school - don't get me started on my baby growing up - and I'll pull Maddie out for the graduation ceremony and luncheon, then take her back for the remainder of the day.

The Friday is Cora's birthday, so you can imagine how that will go: lots of running and crafting and bouncing and probably swimming.

And sugar.

And we put a huge button on the end of this week with Cora's blowout birthday party on Saturday - she and several of her friends will be putting on a mini version of the Nutcracker at my theatre school on the big stage. To call this a huge undertaking is an understatement. But you only turn five once.

Tired? A little. But it keeps me from thinking about all the milestones we're hitting this week.

And then, of course, there's next week: Maddie's class party, Maddie's field day at school, Cora's summer vacation starts, ballet recital . . .

I'll think about all that later.
