Today we had B's 6th birthday party. He wanted an army party. We told him that we were going to do an obstacle course and tug-o-war. This afternoon we surprised him with the news that we were actually going to have laser tag. Boy was he excited!
Unfortunately, Texas weather didn't help us out today. The temps were in the 60s this morning. At 11:30, the wind turned, blasting in from the north. The temp fell and the wind blew steadily all afternoon. The party started at 3:00pm. Luckily, you hand a 6 year old a laser gun and they don't really care too much about the weather. An hour into the party, spitting rain started. They lasted another half hour before they finally gave into the cold. We told the guy to go ahead and pack up. The 15 or so kids (party guests and siblings) played in our newly cleaned out playroom. It was noisy and chaotic but fine. We had cake and guests trickled out.
B had a fabulous time at the party. Of course a long day and a long active party ended in a meltdown. I was declared the stupidest, meanest mom in the universe. When I said I was sorry that he thought I was the meanest, stupidest mom on earth, he corrected me and told me it wasn't the earth, it was the universe. Needless to say, he went right to bed. Now it is time for me to go to bed.
