We've survived our first toddler birthday party!
The boys were excited to be having a party, but got it into their heads that it wasn't at our house. Even when the banners and balloons went up, they still didn't work it out.
They liked getting presents, seeing their grandparents and cousins and of course eating cake, but they're still a little young to appreciate the finer points of pass the parcel (or even the basics).
Unfortunately since then the Calico household has been struck down with a bug. We've spent today feeling sorry for ourselves and praying that the puking is over.
Baby Baby will be taking a little break for the rest of the summer*.
My Mum is coming to stay and I don't want to spend the only two weeks a year that I see her sat at my laptop.
Also we have the actual birthdays of all the men of the house coming up next weekend. We have three birthdays in four days. Yes, that is an awful lot of cake :-)
*that's the theoretical summer, since it has rained here almost everyday since the beginning of July.
