Something weird is happening in this blog of mine because the date has not changed since July 23---so this is what I am going to do-----make the date as my title. That way, nobody gets confused and people won't accuse me of neglecting this blog.
Another strange thing is that the newest tidbits I put in here do not appear as the latest post but somewhere in the archive.
Anyway, let this not spoil the party as we move on to what transpired during the 5th birthday party celebration of Dewey held at ABC Learning Center. It was fun! The kids looked like they were enjoying just having a short party with their classmates. The kids wore zoo party hats of hippos, giraffes, elephants, tigers, and bears. And yes, you'd think the teachers required the kids to bring gifts coz they each had a gift for Dewey. Each one went to the celebrant, gave her a peck on the cheek before handing her the gift. How nice.
I think having a birthday party at school among her classmates and teachers is good. We are considering this for her future birthdays. It's less hassle, less costly, less greasy and more fun!
