My daughter turned five on Friday, so this weekend was spent celebrating her birthday. I’m completely exhausted.

Saturday we had the birthday party, which drew about 20 little kids between 2 and 5, and a slightly smaller number of parents. My father and stepmother even flew in for the weekend.

So between leading treasure hunts, playing host, acting as chauffer, and trying to keep children both happy and well-behaved in the face of serious (if pleasant) disruptions to their schedules, I’m now fairly wiped out.

Not that I had a lot to write about, anyway.
