Shannon’s Mind on a Thursday(MOM): Birthday Party Drama and Cruise Ships

big apple circus
It’s been a crazy week. Amelia had a fever and then recovered. Then 4 days later she got an ear infection in both ears and a sinus infection. On top of that my husband is in Los Angeles for work. So I am alone with a sick kid and hyper puppy 🙁

Luckily, today she was able to go back to school and I can go back to blogging. So here’s my MOM post on a Thursday…

JFK airport is building the first animal terminal in the world! I am so excited because I have always wanted to bring Freckles to Kansas to meet my family.

I love going on a cruise ship and if I didn’t have a daughter I would get a job on a cruise ship and travel the world just so I could live on one. I read an article about a woman who sold her house and pays $164k a year to live on a cruise ship. This is my dream. Hats off to this inspirational lady… now I just need to find a way to afford $164k a year…

The most annoying part about having a school aged child is dealing with birthday party drama. Amelia’s school used to have a policy that you and to invite the whole class to a birthday party. My apartment isn’t big enough to fit the whole class so I had her party at a place where it cost $15 a kid and you know what happened on the day of? Some people who said yes didn’t show. It made me so mad that I had to pay for their kids anyway. The same thing happened to this mom and she sent an invoice to the parents. Would you do this? I would do this in my fantasy world but in life I just move on when I deal with rude parents.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and that you and your family stay healthy!!!

    First off…
    Sorry to here Amelia was under the weather…
    Ian was too, he had a viral today and “the green poops” as he told the doctor. I love that they ask him now… and then confirm with me… It makes him feel better about going to the doctor.
    I can’t believe A is another year older… Where has the time gone??? I remember when I first saw your blog and she was a baby… :0)
    I did read the article about the crazy invoice lady… And while I understand she was upset she was OUT the money, kids parties are SO expensive… I blame the places the hold the parties as well.
    I think they should have it on a more sliding scale.
    Like for the first say 5 kids it’s so much per kid… Yeah it’ll be a little more… but still… then as you add a child the cost goes down…
    It’s just crazy…
    I think I’d send an invoice to the parents “Thanks for the no show”… LOL
    In my fantasy world… :0)
