We travel back two months for this week’s photo – because my camera is still broken.
It’s killing me.
The moment this week is one I’ve meant to blog about for… well.. almost two months.
This year my son did not have a 4th birthday party.
January and early February were plagued with behavioral problems, particularly at my gym’s child care. He was banned several times for pushing, hitting, tackling, and once punching other kids.
I warned him if he continued, no party would occur.
He continued, banned a 4th time just four days before his birthday.
Instead, my dear friend Rama offered her house for a gathering of her family and mine. I brought the food, she provided a location my son enjoys more than any party place.
If you’re knew to my blog, my son miraculously exorcised the terrible three’s as he turned 4.
The day of his birthday was a blast, only celebrated between CG, me, Lil Diva, Grandma G (my mother-in-law) – with a cameo appearance over Skype with my parents, brother, and grandparents.
The next day we drove to Rama’s house.
Our sons ran amok.
We ate pizza.
We devoured cupcakes.
Everyone ran amok.
Another perfect day, just like the day of his birthday.
We still have rough patches, the occasional meltdown, and waking up on the wrong side of the bed.
All in all, life has dramatically improved since The Tackler reached his 4th birthday.
I do not miss the terrible three’s.
Trapped in Time Moment: The Birthday Boy in the Mirror
So tell us, CG, who won the Back in Time Caption Contest featuring my 2 year old self in pajamas and G-pa’s work boots?
CG: I pick Ilana from Mommy Shorts caption of “Whose up for fly fishing?” Of all the submissions, this one provides the most amusing visual, and the one that I can see reproduced in my kids today.
Congratulations Ilana! You win the coveted Chaos Captioning Cup and the privilege of judging today’s winner (of a contest already modeled after your own).
So tell me, what did The Tackler say to himself in the mirror?
Put your suggestion in the comments below and Ilana will judge the winner.
Have fun with this and pass it on!
