This past weekend rocked. I rocked. Roan rocked. Anson rocked. I am tired, though. Let me tell you why.
Friday: Class party at Roan’s school.
frosting (custom colored by Roan’s special blend of food coloring)
Plenty of M&M’s, chocolate chips, sprinkles, and of course
Friday One Hour Later: It began to snow for the first time for real this year.
My assignment: Break Roan out of school early to play with me in the snow.
Means: Used the “I’m his Mother” line. It Rocked.
Outcome: Duh. We rocked.
Friday Evening: Private party with Roan’s friend who can’t attend Official Birthday Party.
My Assignment: Arrange to see “The Tale of Despereaux”. Be cool about soda, popcorn and candy prices as well as nutritional implications.
Means: Find “Happy Place”. Stay there.
Outcome: Found it, Rocked it. Enough stamina to keep the party rocking back at friend’s house and get Roan to bed much too late.
Friday Night: Make Roan’s Birthday Party Cakes.
My Assignment: Self-explanatory.
Means: Make Anson do it.
Outcome: Awesome. The cakes rocked.
Saturday: Host Roan’s Official Five-Year-Old Birthday Party 2008.
My Assignment: Throw Roan a party to rival last year’s Disco Party.
Means: Booked old-school bowling alley, invited the homies, relaaaaaxed.
Outcome: Good friends, good bowling, good cake, bad lighting. Still, it rocked.
Saturday Night: Christmas Party.
My Assignment: To enjoy my friends and their friends and make some new friends.
Means: Get drunk so I’m once again the best dancer in the world. (I jest. I am the best dancer in the world always and forever with or without alcohol but really it wasn’t that kind of party.)
Outcome: ROCKED! Amazing food, Roan hung out with his best friend, Anson and I got to hang out with some of our best friends and walked home through our Brooklyn neighborhood with a sleepy kid hoisted in Anson’s arms, once again going to bed much too late.
Sunday: Go to The Big Apple Circus
My Assignment: HA! Actually this was an assignment for Mommy Poppins. This is totally my kind of work.
Outcome: Read about it at Mommy Poppins like I told ya!
