After last year's disaster at a friend's party, I thought we may have been banished from all birthday parties in the state of TN. I don't know if I talked about it on her, but rest assured, it was bad. So I was kind of dreading this year's party and hoping that Ava behaved much better. We talked about it for days and how she wouldn't be getting presents because this wasn't her party and that hers was coming. So Ava picked out a present and away we went.
I was shocked that my child was very well behaved (you just don't realize how bad it was last year!). We only had one small incident and that was dealt with quietly and quickly and the rest of the time, she had a blast! The party was held at a little place that offers the bouncy items to its guests. Ava was very hesitant about those because the air pumps were very loud and she does not like loud songs lately (unless she is making them!). But once she finally got in, she loved bouncing and had a fantastic time. She was such a great kid and definitely did not want to leave when it was time to go!
