Nine months late? Is that all?

Grit has finally got around to the gritlet's birthday celebrations. Yes, I know how long ago their birthday actually was. February.

In a moment of stupid drunkenness, foolish Grit casually suggested to the gritlets that for their eighth birthday they could invite some chums to a local paint-your-own ceramics studio. And kids don't forget anything, do they? Like who ate the last slice of pie last December and who had to wear Shark's coat when they didn't want to.

Well I say some things take time. Anyway, in the home educating community you can never get everyone together on the same day at the same time. And Trinny went back to school in September, so she can't come at 2pm, can she?

Oh blimey, just better go with who's around, right here and now, and then I can get the ruddy thing done and dusted by Christmas.

Happy birthday, gritlets!

Well, you do keep your promises in the end. I have to say that much, but then again, the gritlets never forget, do they. My kids would have given up on me and chalked another one up to experience. Another disappointment from good old Mom. It's a good thing that the gritlets are so persistent. They keep you hones.

Honest, I meant to write.

Well done Grit, glad to hear I'm not the only one delaying birthday celebrations!

Small hasn't had his birthday celebrations yet, his birthday was May. This year has just kind of gotten away from me. :(

Could it double as an early 9th birthday celebration too?

Grit said...

hi irene! i *try* to keep those promises. better still, i shouldn't make them in the first place.

my goodness btm, i feel i have discovered a group just like me on this score, and am very relieved about it! now i can deal with the guilt.

jax, you are in the we-will-do-birthdays-later club!

i thought about that sharon, but they wouldn't let me get away with it.
