Our sweet Middle Man has his birthday smack dab in the middle of summer. Bummer!
Most kids are away on vacation, or are out of contact from the school year. But this year, I planned ahead. I was good about sending out the invitations early and even hand delivered a couple of them to make sure some of his school buddies could be there.
And then the unexpected happened. Strep throat. NOOOOOOOO!!!
And poor Middle Man was stuck at his grandparents house, feeling lousy, the day before we were supposed to have the party.
My husband and I picked him up and then I spent the rest of the afternoon with him at Urgent Care.
I was NOT expecting this. This really threw a wrench into our plans, and poor Middle Man had to be told that his party would have to be another day. (And also told that he would have to have a big shot in his bum since we wouldn't be home to give him penicillin 3 times a day for the next 10 days) Not a good day for the little guy, or his sad momma.
But the party must go on, and my whole family had come to town to celebrate the big "6." So we changed it from Sunday to Thursday (my family had to go home on Friday).
And even though the party ended up being much smaller than we had planned, we partied on and gave Middle Man the best party ever!
It really was a great party, and the important thing was that the birthday boy had a lot of fun and felt celebrated. Stay tuned for more to come...
