Last weekend we went to a little boy's birthday party at a neighborhood pool. Little kids' parties are best enjoyed as a kid, by parents, and/or with cocktails. Fortunately, since we've had Beep, we've rediscovered the hilarity of watching a bunch of kids sugar-seek like crack addicts.
Beep didn't really want lunch, or cake, or interaction with humankind. All she wanted was to carry around a bunch of balloons.
Eventually, Cabbage dragged her away from her balloons... and got her in the pool despite her protests.
Gleefully shrieking and learning how to paddle...
A pensive stare... Is she peeing? (I'm not really sure what swim diapers are supposed to do, btw. If you could tell me, I'd appreciate it.)
Frog-kicking takes concentration.
And our favorite sport: baby-tossing!
It had been a while since we tormented our kid with Baby Tricks, so we forced her to wear a party hat. She was pretty happy about it.
I firmly believe every kid should provide parental amusement.
