Guess who’s coming to dinner? 3 pre-teen boys to spend the night with LilZ for his birthday. That’s right. THREE BOYS. And if you add them to the one I already have, that means there will be FOUR BOYS spending the night at my house tonight. Do you know what kind of damage FOUR BOYS will do to one’s home, much less one’s sanity? A LOT.
Actually, it will be fun. LilZ has good taste in friends and they shouldn’t be too much trouble. And instead of cake, LilZ wanted to have fixings for ice cream sundaes and you know what? I’d allow four serial killers come spend the night if it gives me an excuse to buy tons of ice cream and tons of ice cream toppings. While we were shopping for ingredients last night, I was all “Do you want butterscotch?” and he’s all “Nahhh…” and I’m all “Whatever….” and I put it in the buggy anyway. Why? BECAUSE I WANT BUTTERSCOTCH! That’s the perk of being a mom, you know, getting to buy the ice cream toppings YOU want. Other toppings LilZ didn’t ask for but I grabbed anyway? Marachino cherries and caramel. Can you believe the kid didn’t want CARAMEL?
And he wanted waffles for breakfast tomorrow morning, but what did I talk him into instead? Making a run to Krispy Kreme for Fresh! Hot! Now! donuts first thing instead. And who loves Krispy Kreme donutes? Me!
Is it starting to sound like that MAYBE this party is more for me than LilZ? That’s what I like to call BRILLIANT PARENTING.
