Today is the big day. The presents are ready and the balloons are up. The cake is iced and awaiting approval. I am hopeful that it meets all the criteria: four shades of pink and it has to touch on the flamingo theme. Only time will tell though.
I am slightly nervous. It will be the first party "without" parents, and now, suddenly three hours seems like a very long time. Of course, I have thought up all sorts of party games. I have made a detailed time schedule, wrapped the pass the parcel in umpteen layers of newspaper, and created a child-friendly play list. Nevertheless, I will have six kids under the age of six, under my supervision, for one whole afternoon.
