best out of ten
Not kidding. I really did take 10 shots. This really was the best one. It was a fun party. No crying (at least not by any of my kids), no broken lamps (or bones, but you can see where my priorities lie), and lots of leftover cake. A success, I think.

Most importantly, our girls are another year older and we have another year of parenting under our belts…at least I suppose that’s one way of looking at it. I still kind of think there should be some sort of “labor day” celebration for the mommies on the kids birthdays. I guess that’s what Mother’s Day is for. Way to make their birthday about me, huh?
