Kid Parties, Part II

After last week's rant about birthday parties, I found myself at another birthday party today but what a difference!! This was the polar opposite in party terms; it was a pleasure to attend today's party, both for The Middle Child and for me. The hostess/mom was warm and welcoming (she's that kind of person; I think the world of her) and made sure everyone was comfortable. She took the time to chat with every parent as they arrived even though she was busy. She introduced parents to each other. The kids were well behaved for the most part, and supervised by attentive parents when they weren't, and were entertained with age appropriate activities. There wasn't a beer or cigarette or insult T or even a piñata in sight!

If every party was like this one DH wouldn't get stuck on party duty all the time. ;)
