Both our boys have birthdays in October. Two days apart, in fact, and it can make for a very hectic time in the house. We had a kids party on Friday with 2 guests for our now five year old, a kids party on Saturday with 8 guests for our now 7 year old, and a family party with 7 guests on Sunday.
Now it's Monday, and it's time to grab the Hoover and clean up after the wild and woolly weekend.
Everyone seems to have had fun though… especially the kids and their guests. As with all kid get-togethers, we had a few issues. A couple of the kids insisted on rough-housing, walking on the furniture, etc. A couple of threats of time-outs brought them back to a reasonable level, I guess.
So, here I am, tired and cranky, and a proud father to a five and a seven year old. Go me!
