I went to hold a teacher training meeting at the park so our kids could play on the splash pad while we worked. No one came. I saw a mom struggling to set up the table with only her 7 year off for help for her baby's birthday. I helped. Then sharked the tent table we claimed with another birthday since no one was coming.
We were unexpectedly rewarded with pizza, sandwiches, cupcakes, drinks, and some chocolates to take home. Form both sides more or less.
And we had fun.
(yes not comic gloating but I'm adding it dang it!)
