Up until now, the Littles have mostly had a small party at home for their birthdays. If not that, then just a couple of friends or to dinner (once) or the local soft play (twice).
At the ages of 8 and nearly 10, that’s 15 parties I’ve organised, catered for and run.
Not a bad record.
This year, though, I have cracked.
The Boy went to the cinema with four friends and then out to lunch.
The Girl has hit the big time – 14 friends at the local laser tag. It might be her last party!
At least I can get her to write the invitations.
