An Excerpt/Birthday parties for the kids

"Then, of course, there are all the moms trying to one up each other in the birthday entertainment side of things.  The jumpy castle things, the pinatas, and the bubble machines.  When I was that age we would run through the sprinkler in the back yard and simply dig into a store-bought, half frozen white cake.  These parties are so elaborate that the guests are given gift baskets.  It's like being in the audience at an Oprah taping."

  1. I don't like the hitting the pinatas. Seems like a lesson in violence. Heard a Buddhist saying yesterday that there is no place to spit. Nor to beat a poor animal. So next time you see a pinatas, please stand in front of it and protect it. For your uncle. Thanks!
