Thalia’s Birthday Weekend in Numbers

2: Number of family celebrations for Thalia (So take that, America)

47: Number of minutes she lasted in her birthday dress before deciding that “naked time” would be more fun

7: Total number of times the happy birthday song was sung and candles were blown out

Party #1, Happy Birthday Song #3,
and we’re just getting started here

2: Number of parents coming to the realization that you can buy your child a ridiculously overpriced top of the line supertricycle that promises real air tires, a comfortable ride and an authentic bell, but only when presented with a little Melissa & Doug animal toy thingie will she exclaim WOWWWWW! OH MY GOODNESS! HEY, COOOOOOOOL!

1 million: Number of dollars I wish I had so I could pay my relatives to live with me and attend to my children whenever I need to take a nap.

3: Number of friends made; 2 of them inanimate

New Friends, L to R: Quinlan, “Girl,” “Boy,” Thalia

100: Estimated number of times I felt like a complete dork tearing up over having a 2 year-old.

Two! How is that even possible?

  1. Aww, I get teary thinking of how fast my baby is growing too. One day, she will hate me, if even for a minute, and I just want to stop time, keep her a baby, and from ever hating me.

  2. Happy Birthday, Thalia.I am still amazed at how quickly my kids have grown. I keep telling them to knock it off. But do they listen?

  3. Adorable! She’s way cuter than Q. And I don’t believe anything Kristin said about you.LOL!Love the idea of blowing the candles out multiple times. That’s the best part anyway!

  4. What are those two fleshy children plotting with the “others” in that picture I wonder…..Happy Birthday Thalia… 7 times over again!

  5. Oh Happy, Happy Birthday, Sweet Thalia! Two is such a very special age and so far you’re doing it proud. And between you and me? I love the party dress, but trust me when I tell you that you should take full advantage of “naked time” while everyone thinks you’re the most gorgeous thing ever…and you are, of course. Eventually, it’s just sad to note that shedding your clothes just makes people feel queasy, including yourself.

  6. those inanimate friends are *dope*awww. and that’s quinlan? also unbearably gorgeous.happy happy birthday, Thalia.

  7. 100 — Number of times I teared up knowing you won’t just be a hop skip and a subway ride away…WAHHHHHHHHHHHHH.We love Thalia and Sage and her cool toys.Although Quinlan did bring the Vortex thing. Now that’s pretty cool. Or weird. Or something.

  8. My son just turned 2 also and I’m hoping that by the time he’s 16, I’m not crying on his birthdays anymore. Regardless, don’t you worry about those tears over Thalia being two. You’re her mommy and you can cry over her anytime you want!

  9. Happy Birthday Thalia! I cried like crazy when my baby turned one, so don’t feel bad! She’s so adorable!

  10. Two is the best age. Two and a half is even more glorious. Oh, Elby says “oh my goodness” too. Where do they get that? it’s not like it’s part of my repetoir. We don’t live in the 50’s. It’s so strange where they pick this stuff up. At least it’s not “No fucking WAY!”

  11. Happy very, very, very belated birthday, Thalia. And happy motherhood anniversary to the woman who puts “mom” in Mom-101.

  12. If Thalia’s birthday is July 10th, this is so freaky. Because. My birthday is July 10th and my only daughters name is Thalia and she was born July 9th-not induced. My husband picked out her name and we had never heard of the name before until we went name searching on goggle. Our planet really is so small when you think about it.
