So Excited

Honestly, I have never been excited about birthday parties for the Raggirls.

Best case scenario is they ask for a Gym Party with a princess theme. Then, we rent out the My Gym for a party, watch the kids swing on zip lines and do forward rolls, then give them a piece of Cinderella on a cake and usher them all out. The several hundred dollar expense is the fee for keeping the kids the hell out of the house.

Worst case scenario is that we have to clean the house, buy the food, entertain the kiddies, and have the whole mishpachah over for several hours.

Which is why I was so happy when we asked Medium Raggirl what she wanted for her fifth birthday, and she said that she wanted a "Mad Science Party." (She is a huge Franny K. Stein fan.)

Does such a theme exist? Why yes it does. We are having "Mad Science of New Jersey" come to the house and put on an hour-long interactive show for about a dozen 5 year old girls.

They tell us that the theme will be "Polymers." I have no idea what that will mean. But for the first time, I am actually looking forward to a Raggirl's birthday party!

As a former Mad Scientist in Atlanta, let me tell you, it's a pretty cool show. Spring for the "bubbling potions" upgrade. It's some extra dry ice experiments that are pretty cool.

And don't forget to tip your scientist.

Thanks for the advice.

We did it over the phone, and they are mailing us a list of possible upgrades. We will go over them with MR, and decide accordingly.
