  2. Loved your entry on Birthday parties. I endorse and enter into the pact. I would like to add my own comments…. 1. As of the fifth birthday, parties should be parent drop off in other words, the host should send the mom’s and dad’s out for coffee or let them get the grocery shopping done. 2. Parents picking up after a drop off party should be scrupulously on-time. Fifteen minutes early is preferred, in fact I will reward early parents with a piece of cake. 3. Please don’t put candy in the goody bag, if it can be choked on in the back seat of a car. My kids won’t wait to get home to crack open the goody bag. 4. If you want to send thank you notes, send them via email. I don’t need to add to the stack of mail accumulating on the dining room table.

  8. Absolutely loving your blog! My daughter-in-love and her partner opted for Momma and Mummy so are going to appreciate your Daddy/Daddy post (though they likely already discovered you well before I did). I’m looking forward to the book. Great writing, Jerry!
