With my 4 it's always the oldest person who is not the B'day girl causing issues.

On Cami's birthday I had to pull Shannon aside and make sure she understood that either she pulled herself together and celebrated WITH her sister and family or SHE would be excluded. I would not let her ruin the fun for anyone.

And I made sure she understood that I would do that for any of the kids. it wasn't just for Cami. I wont let them have ruined birthdays because someone is getting stroppy because they aren't the center of attention.

Ohhh yum!

I should make pie for dinner tomorrow. I have some diced pork in the freezer. That could be really good.

Mari's hair is dyed with blue streaks and ears pierced. Sorry my response comes across as cranky earlier, I just feel bad that I dropped the ball.

I saw the pics. She looks thrilled with it. I think she looks adorable.

Dont feel bad. It's ok. It's no good to beat yourself up about it though. If I did that every time one of mine had a meltdown and I had to step in like you did today I'd be a bloody mess in the corner everyday.
