Spent two hours today putting together 29 goody bags and arranging art supplies for the craft project I’ll take her fellow first graders through for my daughter’s birthday tomorrow. Celebratory food is not allowed but parents are permitted to lead the class in a half-hour activity.
Last year (when edible goodies were still allowed), Charlotte trucked in the brownies I made (from a mix) but neither of her parents were able to make an in-class appearance. I didn’t hear the end of that until I told her I could come in this year. Thankfully, my current work schedule allows it.
I hope I make her proud and the craft doesn’t suck. At $75 for supplies, it better not.
How do you make your kid’s birthday special?
