JR has had several crappy birthday parties over the years for various reasons, so last year I made sure she had a wonderful party. And when she wanted a laser tag party for this year, I went for it.
I knew what I was in for. I'd dropped her off for her best friend's party last summer, so I knew it was going to be in a LOUD building filled with screaming kids, noisy shoot-em-up games, etc, etc.
And it's expensive. You HAVE to have at least 9 players--and you pay for 9 even if there aren't 9.
And we didn't end up having 9--JR's best friend couldn't come, and neither could 2 other friends.
None the less we did it.
They had fun. It was a success.
And it's over.And I never, ever, EVER am doing that again.
Now all I have to do is look forward to what she wants for her 13th birthday. Oy............
