Preparations













The invitations have been sent out and the anticipation grows daily. Ethan requested a spiderman birthday party which wasn't a big surprise. I did try briefly to convince him to pick a different theme, something that would be a little more fun to work with creatively like, say, robots or astronauts but I didn't push. It is his birthday after all.

Here's another reason I can't resist. Ethan told me a story recently. I can't remember if he said it was a dream or if he was just doing some storytelling but it was quite the tale. He said that he had been playing in the street and was hit by a car. Spiderman saw the disaster and tried to save Ethan but was himself mowed down in the process. They both lay in the street dying. And as they took their last gasps, they both reached out their hands towards each other!

I'm working on party favors, inspired by an idea here.

Claire said...

Yes- I think you're right. That was at the tip of my brain...

How many tots have you invited to "climb the walls" at this shindig?

Claire said...

Wait- isn't it PEPPERATIONS? What is that FROM? For some reason I have this mental soundbyte of you saying the word "pepparations."

ljmax said...

Haha...oh my word, I almost titled it that but I figured no one would know what I was talking about...I'll have to email you about what it's from(TOP SECRET)!

KW said...

Pepparations...yes, I should know that, seeing as I was the one who uttered the now infamous words. Keith, eat your heart out...(always hated that saying, but I guess you get the drift)

ljmax said...

KW--actually, it weren't you who uttered the pepperations thing I'm talking about...although yours was the parties and celebrations! Good gracious, we are weird!

Claire said...

Ooo! Ooo! I remember!

Is the blow-up spiderman going to be resurrected for the party despite his amputated arm?
