This year my son wanted to invite his friends to an escape room puzzle. But I didn’t have the heart to say no. So, I did what every Indian mother would do. If a kid is sick and can’t eat out, you make noodles and pasta at home. So, I planned the party at home. I will walk you through step by step about what I did.
This time he really wanted to invite his school friends. I was scandalised. I am one of those moms who only have a courteous hi, hello kind of relationship with son’s school friends’ moms. To host a party with so many kids along with their parents horrified me. Not the expense or food, but making small talk with other parents just no no no.
I have gone to tons of birthday parties where a frail looking man with a black top hat and a wand, shows some overly repititive magic tricks. Although the younger kids seem to say ooh and aah over it, the older guys just roll their eyes as if they just know how the trick is done.
