Annie hasn’t had a party with invited friends for a couple of years. I won’t go into all the reasons, but I felt it was important that she have a special party this year.
It was a pain to organize, because there is so much going on right now, and planning parties on top of so many other responsibilities and obligations I have right now is just not my forte. I have to say, though – I got THE BEST reward ever for my efforts. After the party, my beautiful, beaming little girl looked at me directly in the eyes and said,
“Mom, thank you for the party! Pump It Up is the BEST place to have a party. It was PERFECT!”
I will never, ever forget how good that felt to see her delight and hear her powerful, clear words about how she felt about the party. My heart is full.
