I've been away so long I have to learn a new Blogger system! Awesome.
I have a ten-year old and a one-year old. *sob*
If you want a good birthday party idea for a ten-year old girl, search on Ebay for one of the American Girl mystery games that have been discontinued. Mine was in a damaged box, so I got the game and a book for $20. The girls loved it. Loved it! We did a Kit mystery and made the banana cake from Kit's cookbook. They all dressed in character and really got into their parts. It was hysterical.
Graham's party got rained out twice, so he had to make do with a cupcake and a new ride-on push car. I think he's OK with it.
The principal at K's school has been using K. and me as examples of a child and parent who handle food allergies well and don't make unreasonable demands. Uh, thanks? I can't wait for the other families to find where we live and egg our house. Or, God forbid, cheese our house.
I was just telling Alisa that with a Kindergartner and a preschooler in the house, I now have four hours a week with just one child. I'll set my goals low: one blog post a month? :) Seriously, I don't know how you all do it. You rock.
