Directly after writing the last post, I took Aidan to another birthday party, for his friend Phillip. Phillip's mom is a genius. She told P to pick his four closest friends, and then she got some helium-filled balloons and cleared out the dining room to make room for a giant play date. She served chicken nuggets, bananas and grapes, with goldfish crackers as an appetizer and cupcakes for dessert. The kids had a complete blast, her house wasn't ripped to shreds, and it didn't seem stressful. She is an inspiration.
