Emily and Phoebe

Let's party!!!

It's the (kids') party season. here in Athens. There were two yesterday (one early in the afternoon and one in the evening) and there's one on each of the next three weekends (so far). That's not including whatever we end up doing for Emily's birthday.

The first party yesterday made Phoebe so tired that she was really ratty by early evening. In the end I told her she couldn't go the the evening party (which only Emily was officially invited to anyway) because it wasn't fair to subject other people to her bad temper. She screamed and screamed and screamed (until, yes, she was almost sick) but once Emily had gone she calmed down and we played computer games on the bbc website and watched a DVD of Happy Feet until she fell asleep.

When she woke up this morning, she didn't mention the party I hadn't let her go to, but said what a lovely time she had last night. (Which was of great relief to Emily, who had of course been feeling guilty for abandoning Phoebe and going off to enjoy herself.)
