This weekend birthday party season officially started for Alec, since most of his friends have birthdays from now until May. Alec was at home all last week since he was still coughing a lot and feeling pretty tired, but of course he was not going miss the two parties he was invited to this weekend.
I went with him to the first party on Friday evening. Alec got dressed up and was concerned about his hair getting messed up under his hat on the way there. Super cute. He didn’t want cake (crepes cake) but he ate four oreo cookies and tons of popcorn. Just before we went home at 6.30 in the evening, Alec got his candy bag and immediately made me super proud. On his own, he said “I’ll just eat one candy now and then save the rest for next Saturday.” When we came home in the evening, he showed Louis the sweets and then we put them away, up on the book shelf in the living room. Even though the candy bag was in plain view, he didn’t ask about them or mention it or anything until Saturday evening when he gave one piece to Louis and had a piece himself.
On Friday evening Léonie came down with a really high fever and she was really miserable all of that night and the day after. Which is the only reason I can think of for me dropping the ball completely on Saturday.
