So today was Sam’s birthday party. I ended up with 7 girls and 2 boys at Zap Zone. It almost didn’t happen. I left the house at 11:00 am to pick up Sam and Jason’s friend and swing by the bank. I went to Sam’s friend’s house. She was heading to our house. I went home. No one there. Sam calls her and she is at home. We go back to Sam’s friend’s house. On my way to Jason’s friends house I realize we do not have Sam’s cake. Back to my house. Off to Jason’s friend’s house. Bank is on the way so I swing through there first. After he gets in the van I realize the 2 minutes I have left is not going to be enough to get me to Zap Zone on time. I call to let them know and all is well. I will jump on the freeway and I will be there in no time. No such luck. Of course the freeway is being worked on. When is it not. (That is a whole other rant!) I pull a movie maneuver and swing off the freeway on to surface streets. Now I am going to be really late. Sure enough, my 11:45 party is now a 12 party. The Dad’s that were there all looked at me and said “275 is a bitch huh?” The mom that dropped off just looked at me funny. None of the kids seemed to give a damn. So our first game came up quick and the girls loved it. No women in combat! I need to get a bunch of generals into Zap Zone. Those girls are nuts!
We ate and went right back in. I got swarmed by little girls. They are vicious. I smoked Jason though. He kept trying to hide from me and then ambush me. Didn’t work well for him. He He. After the girls ran around and played games. We opened gifts and Sam seemed to love everything.
I had told Jason he could have his friend sleep over. I was relucticent to let Sam have a sleep over on the same night but by 7 pm since they were playing nice so I told her if she wanted to have a sleep over she could. It must have been because I had just eaten or was distracted. What was I thinking? Now I have 2 9 year old girls, 2 11 year old boys and 2 dogs.
Two kids was definitely the right choice.
