During the second part of the party, Mr. Bungles brought everyone over to a kiddie pool that contained a special bubble solution. Anyone that volunteered to stand in the pool would be able to have a life size bubble surround them. Lewie wasn't interested in volunteering for this, but many of his little friends tried it. Heck, I even tried it too. Why not? Adults can have fun at kids' parties too!
Overall, I was thrilled with how the party turned out. I can't say the planning was easy--last minute, we changed the date from a Saturday to a Sunday because of the threat of severe winds and thunderstorms. About four families couldn't come when I made the change. Still, we were lucky that Mr. Bungles could make the switch and that most of our guests could still come too.
By far, the best part of the day was watching Little Lewie laugh with all of his friends. In fact, he seemed to be the one laughing the most, which was proof to me that "I done good." Very rarely do I give myself a pat on the back for parenting. Usually I'm hyper critical of my actions, wondering if I'm being too lax and not discipling or teaching enough. Today, instead, I was on cloud nine. For once, I felt like all my research and planning had paid off, and I got to bask in feeling like I was a great mom after all...
