Hey, peeps, Deano T. Bambino here. I keep telling Mom that she's gonna have to come up with a new nickname for me cuz I'm hardly a bambino anymore, what with turning 2 and all. Anywho, Mom forgot to post a recipe yesterday, but for a good reason! She was busy baking cupcakes and sausage cheese balls and making fruit skewers for my BIRTHDAY PARTY! (Sidebar: Who serves toddlers fruit on pointy sticks??? Birthday party food FAIL, Mom. Foodie Mama's gonna fire you.)
My party was cool. 4 of my friends came, including my best buddy Kate, and they brought their parents. Three of them are related, so there weren't really THAT many people. My manny BJ was here, as were my "big kid" friends Hannah Jean and Karow. Mom made everyone wear mouse ears since it was a Mickey Mouse theme. I would put pictures up, but our internet is being stoopid and it crashes when we upload things. If you wanna see pictures, you can go to my mom's facebook page. If you're not her friend, you should totally add her. She's kind of addicted.
I got some neat presents including several books, some awesome pajamas, a monkey towel, a stuffed Mickey and Pluto and a potty! Mom says I'm supposed to piddle in the potty, but I dunno. It's a frog and I don't think he wants me to piddle on his head. I did decide to take off my pants and diaper and sit on it for a minute last night, but then I got cold, so I ran away. I discovered Dad soaking in the bathtub, so I got in with him. THEN I piddled. I think he was pretty impressed.
My real birthday is Tuesday. I get to go back to school that day and take cookies for my friends to eat with me at snack time! Mom and Dad say we will have a special dinner that night and open cards and presents from our family. I really like this whole month of celebrating Christmas-New-Year-Birthday thing!(Mom says it stresses her out.) I can't wait to officially be 2. Mom says since the internet keeps eating her video montage that maybe she should finally post my birth story. I say don't hold your breath, folks.
