Aoife's birthday party was on Thursday morning. Maybe it was more like lunch with cake and presents than an actual party since all we did was sit around and chat while the kids played. We only had a few guests, my friends Steph and Katie and their daughters and my neighbor, Joan. Aidan stayed home from school that morning so he could be at the party. At first I was going to have him go to school at the regular time but once he realized he wasn't going to be at the party the waterworks started. I guess I kind of forgot that the worst insult in a 6 year old's world is to not be invited to someone's birthday party. I relented and he had a good time and a short day at school.
