I’ve noticed that when I plan birthday parties ahead and send out cute little invitations, no one can come.
But when I decide at the last minute (say Sunday afternoon) to throw a quick and simple party (on Tuesday morning) everyone is available.
When KitKat mentioned to her friends that AJ was having a birthday party today, one of them asked, “Who is he inviting? Does he even have any friends?”
He does, indeed, have friends, and today he had a blast with them.
We set the moon bounce up in the family room (it was wet outside) and set the egg timer for everybody to get a turn (or two) to bounce.
And we fed them second. The house was messy (it cleaned up fast), I was full with hot dogs and cupcakes, I didn’t get much else done today, but I had a little five year old who was pretty darn happy at the end of the day.
It was totally worth it.
