a super hero kind of day.


On Saturday, our B-Ro turned 3. He had a party. A superhero one.

Check out the front of the invite.

On Saturday our B-Ro also had a sick mama who could barely get herself out of bed. Much less make a cake or even light a candle.

Which is why it’s a very, very good thing we had a superhero birthday party. Because I happen to love a man who looks good in a cape.

No, not him.


As soon as I became one with the porcelain Friday night (sorry for the visual) Brent donned his virtual cape and sprung into action. It was quickly evident that even if I did start feeling better on Saturday (I didn’t) I surely couldn’t be part of food preparation or cake decorating. So Brent got to work cutting fruit, gathering supplies, and blowing up balloons. I think he might have ended up in bed somewhere close to midnight.

I had big plans for a Spiderman cake for my boy which turned into a desperate Saturday morning text to Heather asking to get the plainest cake she could find at Publix. Pukers Beggars can’t be choosers.In typical Miss Heather fashion she brought her A game and turned that bad boy into a cake wreck to be proud of.   

With a little help from a trusty sidekick of course…

By the time the partygoers arrived I was back in my room, um, relaxing. Again, with the porcelain. But I hear the bouncehouse was rocking and the superhero tent was a hit.   

And my big three year old, he was none the wiser. Thankfully this is the age of ME! ME! ME! which leaves little time to wonder why in the world mom isn’t at the birthday party.

As much as it breaks my heart that I didn’t see my boy blow out his three special candles, I know he was in good hands.


And in good company.

And his superhero daddy even managed to take pictures.

Perhaps this Wonderwoman isn’t quite as indispensable as she likes to think she is.  Then again, if I weren’t around, who would be left to bring this guy his gingergale and saltines when the tables are turned?    On that note, I think I hear calls for more Pepto.

Sometimes even SuperDads meet their match.

I hope you are feeling better! Glad the party went well! We’re off to plan our own 3-year-old Little Mermaid party!

Lisa CNovember 22, 2010 - 8:15 pm

I hope you are all feeling better. I hate meetings with the porcelain!

Lorena MoraNovember 22, 2010 - 11:30 pm

Brent is pretty awesome, not every dad is willing to throw a party, especially for a lot of little kids, :-). Ephraim looks like he had a lot of fun. I hope you are feeling better and you are no longer hanging out with the porcelain.

Brent should be your back up photographer, he did really good recording all of E’s birthday party.

HuyenNovember 23, 2010 - 7:45 am

Sorry to hear that you hung out with the porcelain God. I’m glad your man was able to back you up to make sure your little man had a wonderful birthday! Awesome pics!

While its not funny I had a 103 temp during my daughter’s hayride pumpkin picking 3yr old party….being delerious is fun!

sonjaNovember 23, 2010 - 11:38 am

Oh that stinks bigtime. Looks like it was fun–you are lucky Brent knows how to use your camera so well. My hubby would just go on the green box and I’d be sad forever…

JenniferNovember 23, 2010 - 8:09 pm

There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that your very own Superman would step up to the plate. He’s a keeper for sure! 🙂

KatieNovember 28, 2010 - 6:41 pm

Oh so sorry you were sick, but looks like it was still a wonderful party that he will never forget! Love the invitation!

Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net can be a lot more useful than ever before.

Excellent read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing some research on that.
