It was Hubby's birthday over the weekend, which is why I have been absent. Life certainly changes after the kids come along. Friends of ours came out Friday night to play poker, and spend the night. I learned a few lessons to pass on to you.
If you are the person who is getting up the next morning at 7 with the kids, DO NOT give in to the temptation of drinking yourself silly all night. 4 am is NOT the time to go to bed. At that point, you might as well just stay up.
The board game from the TV show "Friends"? No amount of alcohol makes this a good game. It really, really sucks. Maybe if you were stranded on a desert island you would enjoy it, but otherwise, no go.
Kids do not understand hangovers. They can not grasp why everyone is being so quiet, and why most of the people would like to stay sleeping. It's morning! The sun is shining! Let's sing and dance and chat and twirl and bounce....
Ice cream cake is the best thing ever, no matter how old you are.
