It’s a party weekend for us Coopers. Tonight we’re throwing Ellie a little surprise party. Tomorrow night, she’s having a party with her friends. The friend party is movie themed. The film du jour? Herbie the Lovebug. But tonight? Family members are just going to show up unexpectedly. I hope she gets a kick out of it.
Now that the kids are older the kid + family parties have become…well, they’ve become crazy. The grandparents never get time with the birthday girl and I end up running around shouting, “OUR NEXT ACTIVITY IS” and “EVERYONE SETTLE DOWN SO YOU CAN HEAR THE INSTRUCTIONS” and “PLEASE STOP THROWING ROCKS.” You know, the usual party fare. So my big plan is to separate the parties this year—one for family, one for friends. That’s right, back to back parties. Let’s see how this goes.
So how about you? Any big plans for the weekend? Whatever you have going on, I hope it’s exactly what you need.
