We had fun

Yes, we (Harlie and I) went and had a great time. Of course, we were late. Shocker there. Boy it was a rough time getting her in the car. It never fails that while I'm getting her ready she vomits or poops. Whatever happens, I have to change her clothes. And when we travel anywhere I put a pull-up on her. And when we went to the bathroom during the party I realized that I put the pull-up OVER her underwear. Nice.

Anyway, she walked right in the door like she owned the place. It was at one of those jumping places with all the blow-up stuff and slides. She had a great time - and a great workout. And so did I! She certainly can't go in those things alone. So, I had to crawl, climb and slide every where she went. So, as it turns out, there was no time for socializing. But, I have to say, everyone seemed really nice and totally accepting of Harlie. The birthday girl came right up to her as soon as we got there to say hello. How sweet is that?!

During the cake time, Harlie pretended to drink from the juice box. It was pretty funny. And I was shocked to see her take the fork and put some icing up to her mouth. Hey, it's a start! So maybe seeing other kids doing stuff will help us out some.

So, I'm glad we went. She had so much fun! And I was so glad that she got to have fun with ME! I'm usually the one making her do stuff she doesn't want to do. It was nice to have a little outing with just the two of us that was all about having fun.

See...icing to the mouth...hey that is awesome. Peer pressure may be your friend for feeding issues! Glad you had fun too.

Awesome! I can just picture Harlie walking in there like she owns the place :)

I'm so glad you both had a great time. I predict it won't be long and Harlie is going to prove she has the confidence to go anywhere. Not much is going to stop her.

:-) I'm beaming from ear to ear. So glad it worked out and you had fun!

A word of advice. Harlie's a rock star. You'd better get used to appearances at many parties to come...!
