It's that time of year again. When the parade of birthdays start. A's is May 23. All of the kids who have birthdays in the summertime are now required(!?) to celebrate at school before the end of the school year. Which apparently leads them to having parties at home/elsewhere also.
This weekend R went to a Pizza & Play party at a place called Incredible Pizza (I like to call it Inedible Pizza), but there are a zillion games to be played for "just a swipe of your (pre-paid) playing card!" But before they started playing, the kids got to break a pinata with lots of candy. Kids love it; moms, not so much.
Then today we had a double-birthday with two of the kids in A & E's class. At least this one was at a home. Just a lot of running around and a lot of cake. Oh, and more candy.
My "planning" for A's party means asking him which kids he plays with at school, hurriedly making a word doc. invitation, and handing it out to other parents at today's party.
J's birthday is in June, and he will be at his grandparent's house in Colorado. On one hand, that relieves me of planning duty. On the other hand, he has friends here, and maybe could have them over one afternoon before school gets out. But that's only two and a half weeks away. So, when?
And it just now occured to me... The week after J's birthday is my birthday. Can't think of anything I want right now other than to know where we'll be at the beginning of the next school year. Or something pretty...
