Me and my girl at a party for one of her little friends who turned 5 recently. There were crafts! (E made a little glittery box and a reindeer which H insists is a moose.) There were snacks! There were goodies and sparkly wands and bubbles and balloons! E had a lot of fun once she loosened up and got used to everything. (There were a LOT of kids. And also a (very friendly) dog that she was scared of.) She eased into it with some crafting, I finally convinced her to join in the group party game and from that point on…all smiles! Whew. I was a little worried there for a bit. My poor socially anxious child…just like her mama.
