Party Poopers

I'm going to two restaurants for Dine Out Vancouver: C Restaurant and Blue Water Cafe. Both are places that seem far too pricey to go to any other time, and more importantly, both have mouth-watering Dine Out menus.

It ends up that go-Daddy-O and I will be leaving Ella with a babysitter on her birthday so that we can dine out--something I didn't think twice about when I was booking the reservation. Okay, I know I'm going to get some disapproving glances from those of you who have already asked what we're doing for our first baby's first birthday. Will we bake a cake? Possibly (since go-Daddy-O LOVES cake). Will we throw a party? Definitely not.

Let's just say that I see Ella's first birthday as more than just a one-day celebration of an amazingly joyful year gone by. Her birthday is a culmination of many things. 12 hours of active labour, 3 hours of pushing, and a Cesarean section. 1 month of sore nipples, 3 months of physiotherapy, and 9 months of sleep deprivation. 12 months of falling over toys and putting in and pulling out car seats and strollers. And let's not forget about the endless heaps of of stained clothes and dirty diapers.

I think that leaving the birthday girl with Grandma for a couple of hours and going out for seafood is the least that we can do to celebrate such an eventful year. Don't you?
