It's so worth it, though, because the photos are really nice. I finally got some professional photos of Dylan. I feel bad that I didn't get any before, especially when he was a newborn. I was so out of things, though. Nothing I can do about that now.
Oh yes - photos! Oh I can't wait to see the ones of your boys. I really need to get my kids in, too. Going to do a 1 year shoot, and a 4 year old shoot for Nora. I cannot WAIT. Lately she has been hamming it up for the camera so I'm hoping it goes well!!
Ok - so - I never did fill you all in on the friend drama. I'm already over it, but here goes, anyway.
She texts me the other day that she's coming up for Finn's party (which is on Saturday, 8/18) on the Thursday before, and that she's throwing a little get-together at her parents house with all our mutual friends.
TWO. DAYS. BEFORE. His party.
I was like WTF?!?
She's essentially throwing a party for herself in her own honor to see all our friends in one day b/c she can't be bothered to ever come up to NJ. So. The people who would have seen each other and made small talk at FINN'S 1ST BDAY PARTY will see each other two days prior. Stealing thunder, much???
I had a freaking conniption. SAW RED. She did this for Nora's 3rd party too. I had completely forgotten!
That thursday, that she's planning the Party for Her Highness is Finn's ACTUAL birthday. We are planning to go to the zoo or to a museum as a family. I'm not even telling her this. She can freaking figure that out on her own.
So THEN she tells me, she'll be at Finn's party but her DH isn't coming, he's going to see if he can hang out w/her brother. I said he is more than welcome to come to the party and she replies, and I quote, "I'm sure he'd rather hang out with someone or find something else to do."
How freaking RUDE!? How many times did I travel to MD with a child and/or pregnant to visit you and your baby?!? And endure your ridiculousness!? And he has never met my son, so he's coming up for this party and not even ATTENDING!? WTF people!? And you're supposed to be my oldest/best friend??
So over it. B/w this, the CIO, the FF carseat issue, and all the nonsupport, I have officially decided I'm doing NOTHING from now on to keep this friendship moving fwd. I really wish she weren't even coming up.
I'm glad the overlap of ppl going to BOTH parties w/in two days will really only be maybe 3 people. The rest of my friends will be there and that's what counts.
