Ian's birthday party is Saturday. I invited 5 little kids + 2 siblings. Everyone said they were coming, but in the last few days, 2 families have had issues come up where they can't come. So that is 3 kids definitely not coming. Two other families are traveling and get back on Friday so I am afraid they might not come, even though they said they were coming. Only one family is coming for sure. Ian doesn't know the difference, but I feel lame. Things happen, but i wish they weren't happening for his party.
In my last minute panic I was thinking of inviting some other kids, but I don't want people to think they are being invited just for gifts. Ian doesn't care about gifts, yet. With what my mom sent that will be more than enough. When you book a party, 10 kids are covered, so whether you have 1 kid or 10 kids, it doesn't matter. So I would like some other kids to enjoy it and have cake. Maybe at playgroup I will invite another kid or two and stress no gifts.
This also makes it difficult with the food order. Three pizzas are ordered so far. There are supposed to be a few more adults coming by so I want to have enough. the pizza there isn't that great, though, so I don't want too much. Maybe I will order two more veggie pizzas and change the cheese pizzas to meat since there will be more adults. Maybe. Ugh!
One good thing is that my Hypnobabies Home Study Course arrived. Curt called to tell me so I can go pick it up if I want to. He knows I love mail.
