I have long suspected it, but after this weekend, it's official. Those children are difficult children. Their 4th birthday is coming up in a few weeks. Will they be having a party? No. Why? Because the party budget has been reallocated to repair the hole in the ceiling and the broken drywall. (It was going to be a fun party too. At a pottery studio, where everyone got to paint -- and keep -- a piece of pottery) Sigh. Back onto the roller coaster. Buckle up folks, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
