Deadman Party

March 12, 2017

This child loves to throw “video game parties” and entertain his friends. He is definately a people person and seems to have no problem socializing. My son said “his friends loved” the “Zombie Punch” I made for his first party, so I promised to make more creative treats.

This time I changed up the theme a bit to keep it interesting. I used some decorations I already had to set a thematic mood. That theme included me making “Deadman Punch.” The punch had pineapple sherbert, fruit punch, and Cool Whip topped with red sugar sprinkles. To add the dramatic touch kids love, I added the hands made of ice. Then there was the matching “Deadman” cake.

Party 2 was a big hit. Being personable is so valuable and I’m glad my son is able to connect so well with his peers. These are times he’ll cherish forever.

Come Hell or High Water

August 18, 2016

I totally snapped a sneaky pic of this cute kid at the gym a couple days ago. I had to! When he and his sis strolled in with their dad, they had all their [my dad is addicted to the gym] gear in hand… lil collapsible chairs in a bag, fly workout pants, headphones, sunglasses, and an iPhone [to cope with the hours of gym time entertainment they have to endure as lil rats]. Parents with no excuses. I love it! Lots of kids trickle in and out of Mandrill’s.

••| WHEN DAD IS ADDICTED~ this isn’t my kid. |••

It’s been a little over a month since my son became a full fledged gym member. It was time and he’s doing very good. I’m proud of him! He’s done hours of cardio over that time and wants to! I can even see a lil slimming down there. I wish I would have known about the gym since I was his age. He’s all happy with his very own “member number” that he gets to punch in now. He’s been punching in mine for me for a few years.

If you recall… a year ago, he asked the owner of my gym when he could workout.***You can listen to this cute clip*** I completed his membership application and was reminded about “the rules and regulations.” I think I’ve broken several over the years, but shhhhhh… don’t tell on me! Imma be there and now so is my lil man [for evening workout #2] come hell or high water.

Zombies Have Hearts Too

Three frozen hands in "Zombie Punch"

It is so worth it to make my son’s smile light up when we do special things for him. I had fun gathering creepy treats for his Call of Duty- Black Ops III- Zombies themed party. It was a just for fun get together for he and his friends. They had a blast! I got tired, but seeing my son happy made it worth it. As an only child, he craves the company of other children his age. I was surprised he had such a good turn out with one day notice to parents, but who can pass up a video game party?

There were about 10 kids. It’s funny, but when children get together, they mysteriously gravitated away from the addictive video games. What a shocker! One of the boys brought Jelly Belly’s newest edition of BeanBoozled and it was straight comedy watching them challenge each other. I embedded a video below. In addition to gaming, they actually played football, tossed throwing stars, played with Nerf guns and played hide-n-seek.

We had a good time, but I was like… thank heavens I only had one!! Poor my jito! Dear lawd… how did they do it back in the day?

Really? The kid sends me these texts last night when I was still in town. Seriously? Unbelievable! I guess it’s awesome that he associates me with a bicep flex and a ghost tho. Just sayin’…
