So Five happened. It happened BIG time. The celebration was a huge success. And I am spent. Worn out. I'm-not-getting-out-of-bed-until-noon-and-then-only-for-coffee tired. But when you have a five and a two your old, that doesn't happen so much. Not unless you beg, steal, lie, buy or at the very least negotiate for it, and I am too tired to bargain. So I'll have to face tomorrow. The after math of having twenty some odd preschool age children hopped up on juice boxes and cake in and around my house for over three hours. The gift wrap. The sticky floors. The toys literally everywhere. The dirty clothes. The dozens of leftover Subway sandwiches Zack requested for his big day. Oh good lord. Why is it that it is after midnight and I am not sound asleep?
But all in all it was a great time, and I know that Zack felt like a special superhero all day long.
Highlights of the day.:
- The cake went over. Although not so pretty, I am proud to say there were no leftovers.
- To my surprise I had dozens of super hero kids and parents arrive at the house. People actually dressed up. Wonder Woman won the prize for best adult costume, because of the hair. And she was smokin.
- The day I picked for Zack's backyard, bounce house party was the second hottest day of the year. Second after June 12 when we celebrated Evan's birthday in the backyard...with a bounce house. Go figure.
- The heat lead to bouncing- half naked preschoolers and kids running through the sprinkler in costume. Although hot, they had a blast.
- The evening ended at Zachary's favorite restaurant, Zachary's Pizza. The entire restaurant sang "Happy Birthday" to my little man. I hope he remembers today forever.
- I have at least one child who I know will sleep well tonight.
