Two birthday parties today. One to which my son was invited and the other for a classmate of Cinnamon's. Sage was the only boy at a girl's Frozen-themed party at a park nearby. My daughter was the only girl at a boy's birthday party at Dave and Busters. They did not mind.
One of the moms told me the girls had been talking since Friday about Sage coming to the party. I smiled.
The face painting at the park was the highlight of the first birthday party, aside from beating Elsa senseless for the sake of Tootsie Rolls and Tootsie Pops. For the face painting, Sage requested an elephant whilst his sister asked for a bunny. Both were wonderfully painted.
'Call me Elli' I heard Sage, the elephant, say.
'Call me Angel' followed Cinnamon, the floppy-eared bunny.
