We had a party for Cailyn which she did not enjoy - many meltdowns and NOT enjoying being the centre of attention. Regardless of the meltdowns she eventually settled into it and made the best of the day. Mark and I never imagined we could have experienced this so it was HUGE for us!
Cailyn received many wonderful gifts and we are very grateful to our family and friends for joining us on this special day! The weather was crap - raining...stop raining, then rain again. We ended up not having a bouncy castle due to the rain, but our friends at www.jumpingmonkeys.ca who attended the party decided mid party to run out and bring one since the rain looked like it would be letting up. The kids enjoyed it for 5 minutes then the rain came again. Too bad!
For those of you whom have shopped Monnalisa in Delhi you will recognize the dress Cailyn has on. It lasted til about 5 pm, then we opted for a diaper and nothing else. The house was warm from having 30 bodies in it, the air was thick with humidity from the rain, and quite frankly, I would have loved to be in just my undies too.
