When God hands you lemons…make lemonade. When God puts you on bedrest days before you’re supposed to host a “Mommy Party” to get folks excited about the new Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted movie…well you don’t get to go to your own party. Typical me…I think I can cram everything in before giving birth and life doesn’t always work like that.
Through my association with the Children’s Claritin Moms Crew, I was selected to host a get together to watch Madagascar 1 and 2 and get the kids (and moms) ready for the the third edition of the series. Since my pregnancy had taken a turn for the worse, I had to ask my guests (my fellow North Cobb Mocha Moms Mother’s Support group) to party on and enjoy the Claritin samples and Madagascar treats without me. Instead of watching the movies, they met at a park and flew kites. So the only viewers at my viewing party were my 3 big kids who gave me a 90 minute respite during each of the movies. Yay for DVDs! My kids can’t wait to see Madagascar 3! Now the question is…am I brave enough to take 4 kids under 6 to the movies?
Here’s some pictures from the non-viewing viewing party:
