You Might Think Twice Before Inviting Us to Your Party
December 20, 2011
This is an example of the type of note that my daughter leaves for Stalker Elf.
So many questions. Its like she wants to set Stalker Elf up on an online dating site.
Last night my daughter had a girl scout Christmas party. She reminded me of this approximately two hours before it started. This wouldn’t have been a problem except that we had to bake and bring 2 dozen cookies and bring an ornament for an ornament exchange.
Luckily we had a cookie mix in the house. You know the kind where you add an egg and a teeny bit of water and it magically morphs into cookies. Then we spread some frosting on the top of them. My son said we should call these cookies “reindeer droppings” because they looked like poop with snow on top of them. Yes, that’s exactly what we will call them! So appetizing! Thanks for the advice, son!
When we got to the party, I was glad to see that I was not the laziest mother. Amid all the overachievers, someone brought store bought cookies and put them on the cookie table still in the plastic container from the store. Someday I would really like to go to one of these cookie exchange things and bring Oreos, still in their plastic sleeves. I think it would be funny, but then again I think a lot of things are funny that other people don’t.
Also lucky for us, we have a Christmas tree full of ornaments, most of which have no setimental value and fall conveniently in the $5 range. My daugher told me after the party that she felt bad for the girl who got her ornament because all the other ornaments were more like stuffed animals or covered with glitter or peace signs. I don’t understand, what 8 year old girl doesn’t want a rustic wooden goose with a Santa sitting on its back?
