Peanut is about to turn eight! We had her birthday party about two weeks early so her school friends could come. We had it at Main Event. Basically an over stimulated sensory nightmare. Lots of neon and strobe lights and loud techno versions of songs. But Peanut had a blast and so did her friends.
Gimpy sister bowling
She was a super great big sister and helped gimpy one-armed Pea bowl. And the really big news is that it was the first joint birthday party with her mom. And her mom didn't act like she had no social skills like she usually does when we meet. Some relatives got a little tipsy and sang weird birthday songs to Peanut who tried very hard to ignore them.
Peanut wanted a Pokemon cake. I had no idea that Pokemon was still cool. Or Peanut's kind of a nerd. Or both. So what the birthday girl wants the birthday girl gets. I slept about 6 hours the whole weekend, between work and fondant rolling. And then the fondant on the cupcakes melted a little and I felt defeated, but Peanut loved them. And that's all that matters.
Not bad for half asleep pokeball making.
Bliss enjoying the sweet euphoria of cake.
What kind of parties do your kids have?
