what they never tell you about having kids #23

Kid parties. A place you are only too willing to take your child so that they can have fun with their friends, but ...

They usually lasts 2-3 hours, and you will start to question if time indeed, really does stand still.

They are also an occasion where no matter how much you might try to engage in friendly chit-chat with other trapped parents, you inevitably find yourself holed up in a corner, like a wallflower, praying that the cake will make an appearance soon, as that is the signal that things are finally wrapping up and you can go home.

They are frequently a lovely Saturday afternoon that has been tuned to a soundtrack featuring the dulcet tones of the Bieber and Miley Cyrus.

And just when you think you are going to lose your mind, you catch your kid in full-on joy and you are so happy that you are there to see it.
