My husband threw me a surprise birthday party today. We typically just have small family/whoever shows up parties for our birthdays, but have started a tradition of surprise parties for milestone birthdays. Today's party was amusing as I knew he was throwing me a party today and he knew that I knew but we were both pretending to be surprised/surprising. Our friends were very confused. We got a big kick out of it.
Steve and Veronica pretended that we were having a community barbeque today instead of a surprise party. This way they roped me into making food for my own party. :) Steve was in charge of food while Veronica planned out games. She had us play a breastfeeding bingo game. The first person to get five in a row was declared weaned. The guys in the group had a great time coming up with alternative definitions. Apparently hind milk is what is in a sippy cup discovered behind the couch. :)
Next she had us play a potty-training game. There were three dolls(okay one doll and two teddy bears-one for each of my children) that were dressed in a diaper and a onesie. The object of the relay-style game was to change the doll from a disposable diaper to a cloth diaper to a pull-up to underwear. The first team to complete all three stages won. My team won with room to spare. :)
I had a great time. It was nice to be loved on, eat good food and hang out with friends. Thank you, Steve and Veronica! :)
P.S If you didn't get invited and probably should have, I apologize. Next time, I will be writing up a list of people Steve should invite to my surprise party. :)
