Every year Tiger Lily wants a birthday party with friends, and every year I balk. I'm not good at planning fun. This year I had an epiphany: I don't have to schedule out two hours of excitement and games. I made the cake (chiffon with strawberries), my husband bought the pizza, and Tiger Lily and her friends figured out the fun part on their own.
I wish I had figured this out ten years ago, but I'm glad I finally figured out how to say yes to parties.
