The day of Monkey Boy’s family birthday gathering.
It was going to be the day we did a friend’s one, but he forced me to carry through with the threat I made some days ago about having one due to bad behaviour.
Then it just got too hard. So i did things that made him throw tantrums so I could just prove myself right about him not having one.
I did relent, ever so slightly, and allow him to have one, oh, ok then, two friends at the family whatsit.
With the weather looking ominious and the house even more so, we decided not to tempt fate by having the party moved to our house. So, we caused further tantrums by ensuring the house was not only tidy, but clean as well.
