We have party organisation down

Today we held our 20th children's birthday party. Suffice it to say, while it was certainly far from profitable, it was a very stress free affair. 30 odd children for Child No.3's 4th birthday (whole class + extras), play-centre location, food all provided and cleaned-up, no structured activities -- just running around for 2 hours, Hannah Montana ice cream cake, a few lollies to take home and we were all done and relaxed. Very low outcome on the party stressometer.

To be sure, there was little special about all this but Child No.3 did feel special which was the point. Sadly, in a few years she will start to have party preferences like her siblings and it will get complicated again. At least then we can negotiate the numbers down.
