Party at McDonald’s
Paul had celebrated his second birthday party at McDonald’s this year. It was a relatively big party (we’re talking 70 or so people), made up mostly of Stan’s family and a few friends. It seemed to me like he enjoyed the Little Tikes 8-in-1 playset that I rented but didn’t really mind everything else. He absolutely didn’t like the purple Grimace (character) that came out to dance for us.
But last night, at the party of MJ, a nephew-in-law and inaanak, he was actually dancing alongside Grimace. Never mind the fact that he was around 4 feet away, he was still dancing. Never mind the fact that he didn’t want to join the games, he was still dancing! There were times, though, that he’d ask that we leave the party (“Daddy, go home na”, “Mommy, go home na”) but he’d soon forget as he would at times join his grandaunts and talk.
I’m happy with how he’s turning out. Does this mean I’m a good mother?
