Bennett was dressed in his cutest conductor outfit and all the kids got their own conductor hat. Jack's was way too big.
Okay yeah things were super cute but boy did that poor child have some serious meltdowns. First we ate and my sister was trying to feed him the pizza so he wouldn't get it all over himself....meltdown.
He wanted to go in and out of the building instead of be with the party. We were scared he would fall down the steps so we had to keep him inside....meltdown.
Time to open the presents. He had a LOT of gifts. Samantha had Bennett in her lap to let him open them. The very first gift excited him and he really wanted to play with it but everyone was sitting around waiting for him to open gifts so we had to put the toy away....meltdown.
There were many meltdowns during the opening of presents. He wanted down. He wanted to stop. He wanted to play....meltdown.
Time for cake. We light the candle and we sing Happy Birthday. It is time to blow the candle out and he wants to grab it which of course his dad stops him....meltdown.
My mom was feeding him cake and she gave him a bite that didn't have icing on it...meltdown.
My mom ended up taking him home before all the guests left because he was done with it all.
When it is time for Jack's birthday it is going to be just a few people. Yes, he will get less presents. HOWEVER, he can take as long as he wants to open and play with stuff and get as messy as he wants.
