My baby girl turns 6 on Monday. She is a social butterfly and we invited EVERYONE in her class to her party. Yes- everyone. So now we have 28 kids- only 4 of whom are over the age of 8- coming to a party at the local zoo. Since most are little, their parents are coming too.

I hate crowds.

It is also good because I drafted my 14 year old daughter and almost 14 year old cousin to face paint

...I realize that you meant your post for Beth...but, I did want to say that all of the cliches about time and flying by...are so true...I am so glad now that I spaced my children five years apart...my oldest is a young man on his own with a job and an apartment and a full college load at almost 20...my middle son is 14 and my youngest is 9...I have the best of all worlds...and...I am already dreading how fast the next 9 years are going to pass...
