Nice day yesterday. I loved the hot weather. Took the kids to the park after getting some work done @ home. After dropping off my middle child @ her friends bday party I hung out up the St. w/another friend so my other 2 kids would have friends to play with and not feel left out. I find it tough w/multiple kids w/bday parties b/c I'm never sure if it's ok to bring siblings, unless the siblings aren't specifically invited I feel uncomfortable bringing them. Is that strange? When I went to pick my daughter up the hostess said they were invited, which made me feel bad b/c no big surprise, I didn't remember that or my daughter's towel :( They had a waterslide & lots of the boys were squirting water guns). I just remembered the invitation saying that parents were welcome to stay or drop off per our descretion. And that all the bday boy wanted were his preschool friends for his birthday as well as a soccer goals that his mom already had bought for him. Thankfully when we go there to pick her up the party wasn't over & all my kids & I were able to have some pizza, drinks, cake & ice cream as well as getting to play for a little bit which I was very thankful for b/c my lucky dh went out for dinner & drinks last night w/his coworkers to send off a coworker who's moving out of state @ Tia's in Boston alongside the Bruins players who were also out celebrating there, but then he had to go back to the office & finish some work so he wasn't home until very late so I wasn't able to run w/my buddies :( but the kids & I were able to move some kids books & bookshelves around. I donated several books, clothes & small household items to Big Brother, Big Sister today which felt so cleansing this morning. I'm looking forward to starting another pile for next month. Sorry for the long blog today. Lots on my mind I guess. Wishinbg all you dad's out there a Happy Father's Day weekend!
