Play Group Party

This is really a post about the wonderful friends I have found since becoming a mom. You’ll understand why by the end.

Since David’s birthday is Friday, I offered to bring cupcakes to play group this week. We’ll have the family party Sunday, but I thought it would be nice to celebrate with a few friends. Lauren was happy to have some cupcakes for snack, and offered to put up “some streamers.”

“Soom” streamers, coordinating table clothe, napkins, plates, and party hats greeted us when we walked in. How cool is that? And for the record, Avery is not picking her nose. I swear.

David enjoyed listening to the kids sing “Happy Birthday.” He tried very hard to blow out the candles, but it took the combined efforts of Mommy and Matthew to get both of them out.

The cupcakes were a crumbly mess,

but no one seemed to mind,

except, maybe, Lauren, who had to vacuum her floor as soon as we ate.

Then, as if the cupcakes weren’t enough, there were gifts.

Lauren even thought to get “party favors.” The rubber balls of summer were on sale and she got one for each kid at the party.

David had a great time. It was such a kind and generous thing for the ladies to do, turning over play group to a mini-party for David. Not for the first time, nor for the last, did I think I am one lucky mom.
