Is it Wednesday night already, getting on towards midnight? Where did Tuesday go?! Ok never mind my absentmindedness, I was going to write about the party we went to on Saturday.
It wasn’t that long ago, November to be exact, that Isabelle refused to go down a jumper house slide all by herself. In fact, I can remember when she had to warm up to get INTO a jumper house.
Well, this past Saturday, we went to a birthday party for Isabelle’s cousins, Jenna and Christian. THE. VERY. FIRST. THING. Isabelle wanted to do was go into the jumper house. She didn’t even care that it was all deflated. She wanted in. But it was too warm outside. We wanted to avoid a bloody nose so we convinced her to do other things like look at the new puppy. Awww isn’t it cute?
Nope. Isabelle was not interested. We had to ply her with lollipops and other goodies from her favor bag. And with playing with the other kids we avoided the hot jumper for a while. When it cooled down a little we finally let her go to climb and crawl and slide down backwards.
Yes. Slide down backwards. I did not get a picture of that. I barely got any pictures at all. Do you know how uncomfortable it is to climb through a little jumper house opening with a big baby belly, all the while hoping you’re not giving everyone a free show because you crawled in there while wearing a dress? Well, it’s hard I tell you! And once you’re in there, it’s all bouncy, with hoards of kids jumping off the walls, and hot. Whoo was it hot in there.
Well luckily for me they decided to do the pinata soon after that. Well good for Isabelle too. She was barely in there and was already heated. We had to give her a cold towel, which I do believe she thought was the funnest thing ever. She must have wrapped that thing around her neck for hours. Ok, back to what I was saying, the pinata.
Isabelle did not get the whole pinata thing. When it was her turn at bat, she tapped the pinata with the bat. Tappa, tappa, tappa. No big hits. And when the pinata broke open and pandemonium ensued, Isabelle just stood there as everyone around her dived for candy.
She did not pick up a single piece. Alan and her uncle Bong grabbed some candy for her though, so she did not go without.
The rest of the night was cupcake eating, cake eating, more jumping, climbing, sliding, camera running out of batteries-ing (getting carried away with the ings) and glasses breaking. D’oh.
Yes, I forgot to recharge the battery on my camera before the party. Dumb. And, yes, Isabelle broke her glasses. She told Alan she wanted to go in the jumper. He was putting on his shoes to follow her out to take off her glasses. But when he turned around she was already gone and they broke. Let’s just say: thank goodness for super glue.
