Surprise Party

"Mama," my daughter said. "Do you know my friend who is moving? We're going to have a surprise party for her." "That's nice," I replied. "When are you having it?" "Monday." "Where's is going to be?" She got quiet. "Well, my other friend was going to have it at her house, but the friend who's moving found out about it, so now we're having it here." "What?" I said. I wasn't exactly prepared for hosting a party. "Yeah. Here's a list of things we will need." She handed me a piece of paper with everthing she wanted, including chocolate for a chocolate fountain. "Um, okay," I said. "What time is this party going to be?" "I don't know," she said. "You'll just have to be ready." Great. (Why do I have a feeling this surprise party was more of a surprise to me than to anyone else?) Wish me luck on this. I'm going to need it! (Oh yeah, and she said every girl in her class was coming. That's about 15 girls. Oy!)

    1. Thanks! I'm actually pretty easy going. It doesn't help to get upset about things, so I just go with the flow. Usually.
