Short and Sweet: Cha-Cha-Cha

A probing question in 100 or fewer words:

If you host a birthday party at your house, are you utterly depleted when it's finished?  (Perhaps the "at your house" description is unnecessary.  I'll open the question to all children's birthday parties, regardless of location.)

Our weekend had been a whirlwind even before the party, so by the time Happy Birthday (cha-cha-cha) was sung and the candles were extinguished I was poised to curl up on the couch and call it a night.

In contrast, my daughter was poised for action -- or, more aptly, for destruction.  Her comment when handed the bat: "I’m so ready to whack this thing."

  1. Heck yeah, exhaustion hits like a mack truck. The sugar high keeps the kids going for hours. It's torture. And it's shows up on June 1 over here. :)

  2. Ummm..yeah. My toddler turned 2 in February. We have a large family and a lot of little kids. Each little kid wanted to help open gifts and my son was getting mad. no help from other parents of course so by the time I finished helping him open gifts I felt like I had been through a war! Definitely needed a nap after that!
