Sebastian turned four last week and in true Seb form, asked for a train birthday. I was hoping to throw him a taco party since his birthday is Cinco de Mayo, and we had a train party last year, but no ma’am! Kid knows what he likes and I think it says something about him to still be so interested in the same thing. We took our immediate family out to Campo, which is a little over two and a half hours away, to ride the Gold State train at the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum. Sebastian was so happy. That sounds vague :) but I’ve never seen him so still and quiet. just taking it all in. It was a great way to start his fourth year around the sun.
I’m learning to let go of expectations as a parent, and I owe that all to my children. I used to go crazy for birthday parties! Kind of sad now looking back. And don’t get me wrong, I love planning and creating, but there is so much more than decor and food. This is the first year I’m fully letting go of over the top parties,so I can focus on being present and creating memories they can always look back on.
