So, today is Julia’s birthday party. She insisted on having it at Chuck E Cheese because that is where Nathan had his seventh birthday party. Luke and I were more that a little reluctant to have it there, for the sake of our feelings. However, we decided to let her have it there. Her teacher, who was Nathan’s teacher, is coming. She came to Nathan’s party, under the circumstances, and I wouldn’t guess she would normally attend a student’s party. So, of course Julia wanted her at hers because she is trying to replicate Nathan’s party. I have heard Julia trying to tell Lauren all the things they would do at the party and have had to stop and warn her that they may have changed things and the Chuck E Cheese people may not do the exact same activities that they did at Nathan’s party. I just worry that she will not have a good party with all these expectations. She can try to replicate it but she can’t have her brother there, which is what she really wants.
In around 49 days she will be older than Nathan ever was.
