Umm, I didn’t consult the Mommy Handbook, which means I didn’t really know what I was doing when I invited 15 children to Simone’s fifth birthday. Previous parties have been family-only affairs. This year, we decided to treat Simone to a party with her preschool classmates and a few friends. If I had consulted the Mommy Handbook, I would have known I was supposed to invite as many kids as the age of Simone plus one. In this case, that would mean six children. Doh! If I stop blogging for some unknown reason, it is very likely every kid invited to said party actually showed up and I am tucked away in some corner recovering.
