Syd...the party planner
So, this sweet girl is just amazing. The other night (7 p.m.) I was washing dishes and she came up to me and said, 'Oh, Mom...by the way....WE (meaning herself and the other eight/nine year olds at school) have planned a surprise birthday party for our teacher!' I chuckled to myself and said, 'Great! When are you throwing your party?' She replies, 'Tomorrow--and I signed up to bring the decorations....and the cake. Can you tell me where a tablecloth is that I can bring? I really need a tablecloth!' I immediately started laughing....hysterically. This little lady is literally turning into her mother. (Poor thing!) I began laughing even harder after I asked her what everyone else was bringing to the party and she told me they were assigned to be the 'distracters'....no one else bringing treats....no one else bringing decorations...just her ;) I sense a hereditary pattern forming!
