The girls are attending a surprise birthday party this Saturday for their friend Sarah. One of the moms of another girl attending said, "I don't know how my daughter will keep it a secret. How are you going to keep the girls from telling Sarah?"
I said, "I'm not telling them until we're driving to Sarah's house." She said, "Oh, I never thought of that."
Really? These are seven-year-old girls. Why would you tell them about a birthday party and then say, "It's a surprise. Don't tell Sarah?"
We're the adults. It's just easier for us to keep the secret than it is for a bunch of seven-year-olds. Maybe I'm wrong, but at least that's how it works in our house.
