Opening Boo's backpack yesterday and I got the biggest surprise....an invitation to a birthday party.
This is a huge milestone for Boo. In some ways I am so excited, a friend wants her at her birthday party. In truth everyone from the class is invited. That doesn't take away from the invite.
Boo has been included. She is a part of the class and her friends want her there. Now do Boo's parents?
YIKES the true answer is selfish. I worry that Boo will be overwhelmed (it is a local children's museum), that she will just sit and watch from my lap. I worry that I will have to be confronted (again) with the visual reminder that my Boo is their age but not their peer.
But this isn't about me. Boo was invited, she was included. Boo will be going to her first birthday party.
Update: Just got home to find that the day of the birthday party is a day when we have a family obligation. Upside Boo was going to go to the party. Downside, she will just have to wait a little longer. Bonus? She was included and that is all that matters.
