I just had to report that we successfully navigated a birthday party! And by we I guess I really mean Megan. I think that it was the first one we've been to since family parties in Virginia and she was quite a bit younger then.
We had a lot of talks about the presents and how they were not hers. We talked about sharing and not screaming and throwing fits. And the only one that occurred was when the toy she was playing with was directly taken -- I can't blame her there!
Of course cupcakes and ice cream were a huge hit and even when the little girl unwrapped her presents Megan was golden. If I just hadn't stepped in that anthill it would have been perfect . . .
Well, if it's not one thing it's another!
But I am so proud of her!
