St. Patrick’s Day (the Aftermath)

I survived both classroom parties for the boys (looked at how dazed they are in this post-party pic). It was actually a lot of fun despite what the title of this post implies. Full Speed  was over the moon to have me eat lunch with him and little T.Puzzle danced up a storm for me. I was feeling very thankful to be able to attend both these parties that took place smack-dab in the middle of the day. I know that I write a lot about the challenges of being a stay-at-home-mom so it was nice recognize this perk of my job. It also helped put my kids’ behavior into perspective. Seeing them with a large group of their classmates, I could see that they fall in a mostly normal behavioral range. That was reassuring because when I have just the two of them out in the world, they seem turbocharged compared to their peers. Maybe it will all be okay after all.

Now, the real aftermath of these parties with green-themed food (the rice-crispy treats looked absolutely neon-toxic), will be how long they poop green.

  1. hahaha LOL! When I was younger I ALWAYS wished my mom could have gone to my school parties like all the other kids. I know they loved this!
