I thought having a child turn 10 would make me feel old. I can say now that 11 makes me feel older.
We had a little party for Sid over the weekend. 7 kids altogether wasn't hard at all and we had a lot of fun.
The girls stayed over and we had a spa party. We had foot soaks, painted our nails and did face masks. At one point 4 girls and I were in our little bathroom trying to get their masks off. We also played Bingo and a balloon game.
The best part...Sid was in charge (with a little help from mom and dad). I wasn't stressed at all, I was able to work on some other things during some of the party, the boys had a friend over so they were happy... It was fun.
I was very impressed with my kiddos. Not only by their hospitality with their friends but also their compassion and genuine care that they showed to each friend. My kids made me very proud this weekend.
...and the boys got to soak their feet tonight :)
