At one point Saturday night, while Jacob and I sat watching Spider Man 3 in the bedroom, there came a shriek so loud from the front of the house, you'd have thought the Beatles had arrived on Ed Sullivan. Maybe that's a little too old for the girls who were in our house. Shall I say you'd have thought Zac Effron was delivering the pizzas! Sophie had her first slumber party. 9 girls came for the part and 8 slept over. I have never seen her so wide eyed with excitement and happiness. I imagine this is just the first.
All of the girls had a great time and Julie was the ultimate Mom/host. She had plenty of activities and games. Plus there were pancakes and donuts for breakfast.
Unfortunately, Jacob was and still is fighting a nasty cough. He went to the doctor's on Friday to get placed on antibiotics. He has his energy back and seems to be doing much much better than he was on Sunday. Now, he just has a horrible sounding cough whenever he gets excited. He stayed home from school today. He will go back tomorrow. I am hoping it is not difficult. Julie has to work in the morning and I have to be at work for a very busy day.
I'm not going to sit here and bitch about how stressful our lives are. There are people out there with worse problems. We shall somehow persevere.
Thanks for listening.
