New favourite word? "frack". Pretty much sums up my life these days. I don't like to brag, but I'm pretty much a gold medalist when it comes to biting off more than I can chew. Last night as I lay in bed listening to my boys snore - yup Gabe's still in our bedroom - I did a mental calculation of all our projects on the go and it increased the pattering of my heart tenfold. 

We gots a renovation to complete (and finance and decorate), a vacation to pack for, a 30th birthday to plan, a ski hill to master, a nanny to hire, a business to run, a job to run from, a summer to organize, friends to juggle, family to visit, adventures to take, hobbies to pursue, Pinterest boards to execute, emails to return and blog posts to write.

Fortunately I was able to cross Saige's 4th birthday party off the ol' list, finally. Postponing her big day was the best non-plan ever. The weather was absolutely be.a.utiful and just like her mama, she's been blessed with some seriously amazing - and amazingly cute - friends. Of course I took like zero photos, but this is what turning 4 looked like in our house... a royal breakfast, batman bowling and hurling oneself down a really steep, really fast sledding hill....

I'm going to leave the mommy-loves-you-this-much birthday letter to my better, cooler blogger friends. I was born with broken tear ducts and the births of my own children have only exacerbated the problem. Once upon a time, our lawyer told us that wills in and of themselves provide little comfort to grieving loved ones and recommended that we also write good-bye letters in the event of our deaths. That's the cruelest most brutal homework assignment EVER; one that I failed, miserably. I made it as far as Dear Saige before breaking into uncontrollable sobs. #frackme

In a non-emotional nutshell, Saige is everything I never knew I wanted. She's my anti-dress wearing, superhero loving, I do what I want wonder that's cuddly and brave and the prettiest little thing that insists on being called "handsome". I recently stumbled across this post on my Saigerella transitioning into her 'big girl' bed and it still rings true today... 3 years later. 

"I know I joke sometimes about Saige being sassy and stubborn and too smart for her own good, but when she reads my 2010 2013 blog years from now, I want to be on record saying that I love absolutely everything about my little lady and wouldn't change a thing about her. She's perfect for me, pouty lips and all".

And she continues to be quite the little character. Example:

Happy Birthday Sweet Saigerella! I loved everything about this post. The Batman Bowling. The Sledding Hill. The 'non-emoitional' note to Saige, that coincidentally left my eyes with a little more moisture.

Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

Oh my goodness, Sara...you've got so much on your plate! Hope you're able to scale back soon and get the rest and relaxation you need. Cheers!

ahh, you stress me out just thinking of all that stuff on your plate (maybe cause it looks a lot like my plate too!). Also, I may have just teared up at the thought of writing a 'good-bye letter', are you freakin' kidding me!?

Just think you'll be relaxing on a beach very soon....

There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service?
Thanks!
