To finish off the month of celebration, today - October 1st - was Dia Del Niño! I think they are on to something here. A day dedicated to the soul purpose of celebrating the heck out of kiddos? I definitely want that in my childhood. When I told my dad about this brilliant day, he said, "That's basically what life is. Birthdays and Easter and Christmas and the Tooth Fairy. .. it's always about the kids!" Point taken. But, as someone who has still yet to grow up, I vote for more party days!
Today was totally loco, and full of laughter. Kids were running and screaming everywhere, hyped up on sugar and ice cream and toys. We all dressed up as mini mouse, and played and danced like fun was going out of style. It's back to a heavy load of work tomorrow. I already miss the month of crazy nonsensical partying. Maybe I'll just keep my mini mouse ears on while I work. . . .

Our roof cat, Luna Lovegood, birthed kittens! That was definitely a party to watch.
