Best Party EVER!!!!

So, my bestest friend Lucie is turning 3, which is a pretty big milestone. Her brother's birthday is around the same time, so they had a joint birthday party two weekends ago. Mom and Dad were driving me to Lucie's house, and they were a little worried about finding it... but then Mom said, "Ummmm... it must be the one with the castle."

Oh Yeah! A Castle! A Big, Bouncy Castle with a Waterslide!!!!!

I have to say, I only went down the waterslide twice because I found it to be freakishly high. Mom said my eyeballs got HUGE both times. I swallowed my fear and went down, but after the second time I didn't feel like I had anything to prove to anyone. I proved to myself I could do it, and that was good enough for me.

But then, about halfway through the party, Lucie's brother Mitchell and his friends all got Batman capes. They were alright, I guess... but then... Lucie's mom, Miss Shannon, whipped out PINK Batgirl capes!!! How awesome! And then I thought, "This is the perfect uniform for my Balloon Fairy unit." You can see my group of recruits here. Lucie is my second in the command. (And the 4th kid with the Batgirl t-shirt.)

Baby 2 Needs to Come Out of Mommy's Belly!!!

I keep saying that to her... and she always looks at me and says, "I know, but it's not time yet." Well, this kid better get here quick because there isn't enough room on Mommy's lap for me to sit and read with her. And she grunts everytime she gets up out of a chair or picks something up that I dropped.

This was her a few weeks ago.
We were in a rush to get out of the house, but Dad took a quick picture. She's bigger than this now. She's been helping me use the potty a lot lately since she's in there all the time. Something about Baby 2 using her bladder as a trampoline or something.

Then she took this picture while we were on the Eastern Shore during the 4th of July. She said that people need to see Baby 2 from her perspective. And she pointed out that she leaned forward a little bit so you could see her toes. Normally she can't see her toes. That's why she's been so hard on me lately to pick up my toys.

And yeah, Mom and Dad told me Baby 2 does have a name and we practice saying it outloud. But I'm not allowed to tell anyone until she's born. Not even Nana or Poppy.

I like the name. It's pretty.

The Gigantic Bunnies are attacking...

... by using an inner heat shield that is creating 103 degree temperatures in the Mid-Atlantic region. I should've known they would do something like this! I'm taking ideas of how we can fix this little problem... and defeat the Gigantic Bunnies. Here's what I'm thinking....

I'll call up the Balloon Fairy unit and we will fill up our balloon baskets with ice cubes. We will also accumulate an arsenal of water balloons. Then we will float over the region and drop them. The ice cubes will melt on the way down, and people will be refreshed as we aim the water balloons for their heads. That's what I'm thinking.

FEMA has nothin' on me.

Other creative ideas can be left in the comment section below.

I am the Supreme Leader of the Universe (or at least, the Balloon Fairy unit)

Miss Maria, one of Mom's friends, had a dream about me and posted this on Mom's Facebook:

I have to share my dream with you. I was going to battle against the gigantic bunnies with my general (who was a plant sprout). I turned to call up the Balloon Fairy unit and discovered that the commander was Sadie. Her uniform was an oversized tshirt. I'm trying to figure out what all this means, but I'm sure that if ...Sadie was in charge of the unit then they must be a cunning and fierce fighting unit.

The fact is, I am the commander of the Balloon Fairies. You can see my uniform in that picture there. We are a tough little group. And when those gigantic bunnies get out of control, SOMEBODY has to do something - and it might as well be me. And there's nothing wrong with an oversized t-shirt uniform. They are just as good as dresses and they allow you to kick bootie when necessary.
And I know how to kick bootie. (This is me with my game face on. Bunnies hide when they see it.)

If you would like to apply to be part of my Balloon Fairy unit, please leave a comment and your special skills. We are looking for tough, imaginative people who speak Gigantic Bunny. This language skill is very important, and yet, very rare. We may overlook this if you are willing to share your applesauce and mandarin oranges, as these are my favorite snacks. I like lemonade too.
