Because I'm crazy, that's why

This cold Markus and I have had has been a doozy. It has knocked us both on our behinds, which isn't such a good thing when there are two busy wee ones feeling super-fine and necessitating constant energy consumption. At this point, neither Markus nor I have much in the way of symptoms (no more coughing, sneezing, sniffling, thank goodness!), except for the fact that we could both happily flop onto the couch and nap for hours at the drop of a hat. Despite this, I'm going ahead with Ellie's cake sharing playdate with more kids than matches my good judgment...and I cannot cancel. I could, but I just can't. Markus and I both felt so lousy on her actual birthday that the least I can do is let her play and sugar-rush with her friends this afternoon. It's a Friday. The week is nearly over. Surely, it will all work out, right? Let us only hope the weather cooperates to some degree and does not dump rain on us. Lots of littles sugar-rushing in the backyard, in the cubby house and on the trampoline is no problem; move that inside and oooo....I'm trying not to think about it.

Oh, I hope it is all going well for you!! (It's Friday afternoon there right now as I post, so perhaps it is going on as I speak?)

Let us know how it goes!

Hope it went well Jennifer! Sophie had "only" 4 wee pals round on Friday .... and luckily the sun shone here so all the fun, chaos and mess was kept outside!!
Hope Ellie had a grand time!!

Thanks for the encouragement! It actually went really well. Markus came home early and took over, which was awesome. The kids loved decorating their own cupcakes, and their indoor crazy could have been a lot more crazy than it was.

I'm glad Sophie had such a fun birthday! Happy Birthday, Sophie!
