Party Poopers

Saturday night was my friend, Sarah's birthday party. I said good-bye to calorie counting and we had a real good time. Her mom had made delicious Sangria and we grilled hamburgers and sat outside around a fire, played badminton and volleyball. Henry watched everyone and smiled and chewed on his little blanket.

Something that's definitely different when you have a kid is leaving a party at 8:40 so that your baby can get into bed by 9:00. I mean, technically we could've stayed until later but God only knows what the night would've held if we'd let Henry go to bed at the party and then had to interrupt Henry's sleep to get him into the car and unload him, etc. Potential fussy-town U.S.A. Personally, I prefer the 9 to 3:30 a.m. sleeping, myself.

Thankfully, our friends were so nice and started the party at 5 p.m. so we got to stay almost 4 hours so that was lovely. But, it was a little sad to have to leave such good company early in the night. Alas, we love little Henry and you gotta do what you gotta do to help your sweet boy get enough sleep.

You are NOT a party pooper. We have had many friends move up events so that we can enjoy them and get Jackson back home to be in bed by 8. Understanding and loving friends do that. Isn't it nice to go to grown-up outings? Oh how I treasure those nights!

Personally I agree with Annoymous-I THINK? Welcome to the World of Grownups-where you think of children ALWAYS first! If we sat around a fire in LA in August, they would declare us LEGALLY INSANE!

Good ol' PA fires in the summer. We used to do that all the time and it is great fun. I have the marshmellow scars (opps dripped off on my leg!) to prove it.

Yep, Anonymous has it right, kids rule the roost from now on! It doesn't last forever...just seems tha way, but it is so worth it!
