My Small Successes XXXV
2. I sent out an invitation (email, because I'm lazy that way) for First Daughter's birthday party. Three weeks is plenty of time, right? (I'm not really sure; I hate planning birthday parties.) At one point she wanted to invite something like eight families comprising over thirty children, but we convinced her to limit it a bit more. She picked four families (fourteen children, not counting ours, if they all come). The theme is art and so far I know we're decorating cupcakes. We might paint. I don't know. I fear the mess and the weather, if we can't be outside. And we don't have tables or chairs. (Did I mention I hate planning birthday parties? Suggestions welcome!)
3. Yesterday I made a loaf of wheat bread, two loaves of apple bread and hard-boiled a dozen eggs. I also washed some of the dishes! Then, running out the door for choir (because Second Son was crying, not because we were late), I forgot my wallet, the cell phone, the wet bag and a burp cloth. I couldn't buy gas (which I'd been planning on), but at least I had all four kids and the kitchen was reasonably clean and yummy fresh-bread-smelling when we got home!
