Tea’s Unparty

Posted on

Last year, I enjoyed planning an airplane party for Tea.  He didn’t care about the details that I spent hours on, but it was fun for me.  This year, I didn’t feel any creative sparks in the party planning arena, so I didn’t plan anything at all.  Tea still wanted a party, and we conventiently had playgroup at our house on his birthday, so we blew up a few balloons, his Nana made him a cake, and we threw firefighter hats on the kids’ heads.  Instant party.

Tea’s single request, apart from cake, was to play hide and seek.  Now, I love my kid and I adore his friends, but wow they are some seriously challenged hide and seek players.  There was a dreadful amount of peeking, hiding in the same spot repeatedly, and I was stranded more than once when I hid and no one bothered to find me.  There was also a whole lot of giggling.  They had a ball.

I’m glad Tea had a great birthday.  He didn’t need a fancy party.  All you really need is friends.

Afterwards, Tea assured us that he did NOT need a nap.  Since it was his birthday, we let him chose to stay downstairs.  He spent the rest of the afternoon “snuggling” with his dad.

You must be mistaken - this child is *not* asleep
