Leelo being happier than happy during his bouncy house eighth birthday party earlier today.
The party was a huge success, with so many of our wonderful friends and their wonderful children. The cupcakes Ep and I made were wonderfully delicious even though we forgot to put the eggs in the batter. Leelo even at three bites of one! And I still have a pound of the mascarpone frosting in the fridge -- the best frosting I've ever tasted -- if anyone has an idea of what to do with it.
The two biggest joys of the party for me were 1) seeing so many children with sensory sensitivities having an unabashedly fantastic time in a completely safe environment, and 2) Leelo being so happy and in such a different aggression space than he was at DoubleTrouble's boys' birthday in June that I got to relax and let my son bounce without shadowing him the entire time.
We're so tired that we haven't even opened a single one of Leelo's presents, but who doesn't love it when birthdays get extended over more than one day?
