Where does the time go?

Allow me to get domestic for a moment.

I got an email from ParentCenter; I get this every week and it's no big deal, I get emails from BabyCenter too. Anyway, I was reading the "Bringing up Ben and Birdy" page when I glanced up to the top and it said that son was 5 3/4 years old. It's true, but I sat there staring at the numbers wondering where in the hell the last 5 3/4 years went.

Son starts school in two weeks, a big first grader. (He got the "nice" teacher, he's excited about that.) Where did the summer go? It seems like just yesterday I sat here and wrote that I was counting the days until August 25. The summer has flown and I feel like we, as a family, haven't done a damn thing...unless you count going up to visit the kinfolk in Erie, which I do not.

And did you know that Daughter will be two years old one month from today? It amazes me. I've started that "Introduction to the potty" thing with her, I shan't bore you with the details.

Son will be turing six at the end of September, and in the spirit of his Star Wars obsession, we're having that SW birthday party. I'm already in the planning stages (call me over-reactive and anal-rententive), and I pulled out my two Star Wars cook books to plan the menu. TIE Fighter thingies (hot dogs with bread sticks around them) and what I'll call "Siddious Slop" (sloppy joes), "Anakin's chips" (tater chips...representing Anakin's chip on his shoulder...ha HAW!). What should I call the Rice Krispy treats made with colored marshmallows? Needs to be in keeping with Episode 3 (and yeah, I know, no TIE fighters in 3, but hey, it's an easy recipe.) Ah-ha! "Kashyyk Krispies!!!" And I'll get Hawiian Punch and call that "Yoda Soda." Order that groovy SW cake from Wal-Mart and I'm set.

It's a bunch of six year olds, they'll love it. Slap the Episode 3 soundtrack in ye olde CD player, have them make "lightsabers" and keep a balloon in the air...oh yeah, and Son will probably run around with his Darth Vader helmet on.

Anyone want to come help with "animal control?" Ha ha ha... Anyone like to help me make planets? You know, Tattooine, Naboo, Mustafar, Kamyno, Kashyyk...

Yes, I'm "putting on the dogs" as it were.
