Friday Fictioneers — Fifth Birthday Party

188221BB-54D0-41ED-88D1-AA1B1BCA5FA9It was a perfect day to have all of her friends from her kindergarten class over to celebrate Cheryl’s fifth birthday. Her mother planned all kinds of games to keep the fifteen or so kids occupied. Games like musical chairs, duck-duck-goose, a sack race, an egg and spoon race. She even rented one of those inflatable bounce houses and hired a clown to juggle and make balloon animals. She also set up a piñata filled with candy for the kids.

All of the kids were running around having a great time. But all Cheryl wanted to do was play pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey.

    Poor mom, who planned every game she could think of, but not THE game 🙂

    Kids can be annoying like that, all that effort… Still at least her daughter seems to be easily pleased!

    Being such an important age, that is five, Chery’s wishes should have been accommodated. If at five no one listens to Cheryl, when will they pay her any attention?
