Sunday was Mike’s party — same place, same time, same “food” as the party last November. We had coffee and ice water:
Note that the water was in “child safe” bottles. WTF? I’ve never been afraid of water before, but now I have a whole new, unidentified fear. Up until today all I worried about was my kids clubbing each other with the bottles. Foolish, shortsighted me.
We also had bagels:
And Spiderman cupcakes!
All this plus fun games:
And hey, I rebelled against goodie bags! I decided to get just one cool thing for each kid. I was tired of spending $70 on crap that kids love and lose and parents cripple themselves on in the dark.
I went to my favorite party supply shop and looked at my options. As tempting as this was:
I settled on these:
Juggling balls! In their own bags and ready to hand out! “Only” $2.59 each!
And as the guests were leaving I got to say “Hey kid, now you get to learn to juggle like a real clown!”
