My son's birthday, I just realized, happens to land on . . . election day!
How do you throw a birthday party on election day?! Everyone will be preoccupied with issues, voting, etc.
My husband came up with a clever plan. . . "Why not have a "political party" ?" he suggested with a big grin. "Come as your favorite Democrat or Republican. No Independents allowed." Sure.
I thought that idea might be lost on a gaggle of 5 year olds. . . . Call me crazy. ; ) I think we'll just have to wait till the weekend.
