Rowan’s official birthday party was yesterday. She got to invite four other 7-year-olds. I made ramen and cut up big strawberries and carrots. Oh yes, I made chicken kabobs but none of the girls wanted them. Apparently, the ramen was too delicious. Then we tied-dyed shirts. We’ll see how they come out, they are ideally supposed to sit for 24 hrs, but I bought a cotton/poly blend instead of 100% poly. They may be a bit on the pastel side. And then the girls watched a movie.
I have heard it is is worse with boys, as they can be more rambunctious. But there were lots of fart jokes, butt smacking, and wild giggling. Not to mention that they commandeered the box of rubber gloves to tie each other hand’s behind their backs. They were playing some game that had an evil giant that had them prisoner or somesuch thing. Let us just say that it was a great 9:00 am when the parents came to take them away. 🙂 Naw, I would let Rowan do it again, but I will need a breather.
This afternoon Rowan had Girl Scouts (Daisies) so I have had a blissful couple of hours watching some adult tv (Sex and the City) and having a big cup of tea. And playing with Nova, today she is extra lovable. It was so warm I put her in a little skirt and those chunky thighs–I just want to smoosh them! She was super giggly and playful. Luckily too, in the past few weeks she has actually begun to enjoy baths so they have become a bit more leisurely. For the past few months, baths have been more of a shower thing, as she would just scream.
The other great thing about this day is just opening the windows and letting that great breeze in. I am so ready for Spring!
