Kids will be kids. You don’t have to be friends with any to persuade them to come to your birthday party. I handed out ten invitations yesterday, and today, with their parents’ approval, all ten have accepted.
I’m looking very forward to the party – NOT!!! (Now there’s an expression that is still to become popular).
Mother, on the other hand is quite ecstatic. Whether it’s because she enjoys the idea of entertaining a large group of rowdy kids, or because she wants to see her only son having fun with other children, I cannot say?
Maybe it’s both?
