Whew! What a busy weekend!
As you know, Friday was Girlie Girl’s 5th birthday. They had a little party for her at school like they do for all the kids. I wasn’t planning on going since her teacher seems to frown on making big deals on holidays. Even for things like Christmas and Valentine’s Day, she wanted parents to bring healthy snacks for the class party like bagels or energy bars. What a party pooper. What did I bring? Cupcakes! Hee hee! The class loved me!
However, Girlie Girl really wanted me to stop by and this time I was pleasantly surprised. When I got there, the teacher had blown up all these balloons and even made each table of kids pose for pictures with Girlie Girl. It turned out to be quite a production.
Saturday was GG’s swimming class with our usual visit to McDonalds afterwards (please don’t scold me). I’m really not sure how much she’s learning by taking a 25 minute class once a week. I’m thinking of enrolling her in a blitz session where she would go every day for 10 days. I think the constant exposure would be better. What do you think?
Saturday night was GG’s birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. All I can say is this . . . I WILL NEVER GO TO CHUCK E CHEESE ON A SATURDAY EVENING AGAIN!!! Talk about a mad house! And what is with these parents who don’t supervise their kids? I actually had to scold a child because she was running around and knocking down all the little kids.
Sunday was a birthday party for a child in GG’s class. It was at Planet Hollywood and had a Movie Star theme. All the kids got various accessories to dress up in like feather boas, sunglasses, hats, guitars, microphones, etc. It was all very impressive. I may need to keep this in mind when planning a future birthday party.
Anyway, that was our weekend. How was yours? What was the best birthday idea that you’ve seen?
