It’s my daughter, Pristine’s seventh birthday today and though I know that I need to relax, breathe and just enjoy the moment, the thought of having 15 kids (including 3 small babies so technically 12 running kids, if they all come) in my house scares the hell out of me.
There I said the thing that had me waking up at 3am, three nights in a row.
You see, I am not good with kid’s parties. In fact, this is the first kid’s party that we will be doing at our home. (and I am starting to wonder why I even thought of holding one!) Oh right, it was because Pristine dropped hints that she would want her friends to come over, she likes balloons and party games. Since we’ve been keeping her birthday low key for the past six years, and that because she’s our only child, we decided we’ll go with what she likes on her seventh birthday.
I have things planned out: grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and decorating the house but man, how would I keep 15, ok, 12 kids entertained?
Meanwhile, I am psyching myself to relax, breathe and enjoy the moment. Focus on what’s important: being grateful for another year, making my daughter happy, think happy thoughts, don’t ‘lose’ it. REPEAT.
I’ll all let you know later how it went.
