Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

Birthday Party Countdown

Date : September 13th, 2008 (the day before the EO's 5th birthday)
Event : The birthday party
Theme : Ben 10
Venue : Comics, a restaurant
Guest List : 32 kids with moms, some dads, a few ayahs, a Kaku and Kakima, 2 sets of grandparents, 2 grandaunts and 1 granduncle
M4's state of mind : fragile...very, very fragile

Yes, we'll be leaving shortly for the big hullaballo. I am running around like a headless Mamma with no hands, desperately trying to save every last shred of sanity that is systematically being eroded from my system. After this afternoonish/eveningish party, there's a late night party at home to bring in the SIL's birthday (yes, she and the EO share a birthdate! Thought it would be cute then, now not so sure!!)

Will post about the events if my sanity remains intact!

And now as the Rabbit in Wonderland famously sang..."I'm late! I'm late!"

I cannot thank you enough for having invited us over to your EO's birthday bash. We are so looking forward to seeing you & your family & wish EO all the happiness in life.
I can totally understand the "running like a headless mommy" bit, having organised 4 birthday parties & I swore at his last party that this was the last BIG affair.

Many happy returns both to EO and your sis-in-law. Birthday parties involving a large number of children frighten me to bits, even though I'm a veteran of many!
All the best! May you bravely host many more birthday bashes for both your lovely sons. God bless,.

Happy birthday to you dear EO!
Wow - five!!
Congrats to you Mommy! Five year old! Does it feel good? I mean sad to see them grow up but also a sense of pride and joy in seeing them grow...
Wishing him many many more such happy returns of the day!
Look forward to hearing about the party. 32 kids - I would also be dizzy if I had to call so many kids. I think 10 is the max I can handle!
