The Life of a Home Mom

A Weekend Birthday Party

Over the weekend we were invited to a party (birthday party) and they had rented one of those giant jumpers that you see these days. Now my number one thought would always be who is going to pop it. Right? First of all it was so hot the kids opted to stay indoors to watch Spongebob, Drake & Josh, etc. They’d take spurts where they’d go out front and brave the heat by jumping on it, but not much. Thankfully they rented it for the whole weekend so they ended up getting a lot of use out of it yesterday.

But there was a bigger issue. All those other kids on the block that weren’t invited tried inviting themselves, or those that were invited didn’t want to come to the party itself but wanted their turn in the bouncer. When I say kids I’m talking 10-12 unaccompanied children. None of them showed up with their parents. I always make that a statement on invites, PARENTS must attend with children. Apparently one parent told her child to see if he could come over to the party to have cake, ice cream and jump in the bouncer. I couldn’t believe it.

It was fun for the kids though, mine enjoyed staying indoors and soaking up the t.v., granted they could’ve done it at home but they said they LOVED their couch. It was a very soft, leather couch. I explained I won’t be buying a NICE one until they get a bit older and stop spilling stuff on the two we have. Hehe.

My daughter has to have a nebulizer just about every winter season, that is since we moved out to the Carolinas. It could just be the air out here, which I hope, or something else. Now they have a portable nebulizer, so you don’t always have to use it at home and find a plug in. This is great news for those that like to travel during the holidays, all it takes is batteries and your child will start feeling better in no time. Did you know you can even purchase a pulse oximeter these days? I had no clue, I thought these were only used in the hospitals. It’s those little devices that ya put on your finger to measure your pulse.
