I had a vague idea of using balloons to make a big worm decoration, but while at the craft store getting materials for K's birthday, I saw a package of long balloons for making into animal shapes. These turned out to be great for worm decorations. I blew them up, drew little faces and worm segment lines on them, placed them around the room-- and we had a wormy birthday.
Hard to believe my little boy is five. There's something about a fifth birthday. Now he launches from preschoolhood to boyhood. But he's still my sweet boy--tender heart wrapped in boy energy.
