Okay, let me first give thanks, truly, that my dd is always invited and included in most things. Though there have not been playdate invites from school. I think the allergies can scare people off. Still, she is invited to all the birthdays, and the parents know and are very cool about us staying with her(dh or I). I had an awkward childhood and am so grateful that dd is popular, even with this obstacle!

Now, my vent. I am just tired of birthdays and parties. I know I am not alone here! Don't you all get tired of all the extra baking packing and preparing for every little gathering? If we go to a party, I always make a batch of something, so dd can have a treat. If it is a birthday, I bring a cupcake. And today, my beef is that the allergy makes me have to stay. It is in the middle of ds's usual naptime, and he is a bear today. Cutting teeth, I think(poor guy has had these ones for months, just ready to pop). He ate terrible lunch and I have to basically grab him out of a nap to rush dd to this party at a bowling alley where he and I will then hang for 2.5 hours! That seems so long. Ds will either have to sit in the stroller or run wild with me chasing him for all that time.

I honestly have tried to bribe dd out of going today. I had originally hoped dh would just pop home to work(ds would have been sleeping) for a bit so I could bring her alone. He has been sent out of town.

I sometimes do wish I could just do the drop off thing. And dd even asked me too. I tried to see if she would know to eat only her cupcake, and she started saying, "If (friend's mom) checks the lables it would be okay, right?" or "She could call you, right?" Makes me not trust her yet. She is only 5, but has been great at school. But this is a party at a bowling alley, and no moms I know other than the host, who I do know very well. But she will have her hands full.

Sigh. Maybe we will just go and leave early, after the bowling. I have suggested that to dd. She has been here once before and really had a great time(but dh was with her, so I do not know what it is like there).

Blah, blah, sorry to ramble. Just gets me tired sometimes! This is our third party in 5 days and a day at the pool. And we had a party a week ago too. Chasing 17 month ds out of his childproof environment is simply exhausting these days. becca
