Ambrose's robot party!
Ambrose turned 6 on March 19th and requested a robot party and his wish is my command. I really love this kid party stuff. I know some moms go way more over the top and some moms dread putting on a kids party and I don't know where I fit in that spectrum, but we always keep it pretty homemade and low cost and hopefully high on play and ... uh... sugar. So the kids have fun, the birthday kid feels special, and this year as an added bonus: Ambrose didn't cry once. I attribute this to four possible modifications made to our usual birthday routine: 1. We did not have a pinata. 2. We didn't even mention the presents until friends had left. 3. We kept it unstructured and light. 4. We had some cute helper girls from the ward come play with the boys while we got last minute party things set-up. They helped during the party as well. And my friends pitched in too! So nice. This is a magic combination. I think we have this figured out! Either that or 6-year-olds just don't cry at their parties. We don't know. We've never had one until now. And he's a good one!
