So, yeah, I volunteered to do this party for my kid’s class, right??? It is my first classroom party. I am stressing the fuck out! Not only that but I kept buying stuff at random for the party and then forgetting what I had bought, so ultimately I wound up with too much of some things and not enough of other things. Oy! Last night I let myself get seduced by Pinterest pins and decided to make a Valentine’s Day Chex Mix! With these pink chex in them!
And then I’d put pink, red, white M&M’s in! Yum!
Except… the chocolate kept seizing up in the microwave and coming out all clumpy instead of nice and smooth and pourable, and I wound up with nasty looking clumpy things, and the strawberry jello the recipe recommends you use for color made the entire mix taste DISGUSTING so I threw it out and made a much much simpler one, in the process completely destroying my kitchen. All this AFTER my house already looked like Cupid puked all over it. I spent a whole 30 minutes cleaning this morning and now I am like, uggghhhh too much cleaning!
Anyways the party is coming along. I made a really ugly but well-intentioned “Friendship Tree,” to do “pin the heart on the friendship tree,” and the hearts all have kids names on them. But the tree I made is sadly ugly. But well-intentioned! The hearts have lots of glitter, so that should make up for the ugly, right? Glitter is forever!
Here I have been busting my half-assed self to death on this party and yesterday and this morning my kid is all.. “Mommy, I am sooooooooooo worried everything will go wrong with your party!” Gee, thanks for the vote of confidence kid!
I shall report back from the party trenches later.
