Last night after the dance, the kids were taking down balloons to bring home. Rachel, of course, took balloons for Julia, Ben and Emma. This morning they were playing with them (Julia always draws animal faces on them and then they all play pretend games) and having a grand old time. We had History Club at the library this afternoon, and I had to tell Emma she had to leave the balloon home.
"But Mama, what if my balloon runs out of calcium before we get home?" she asked me, worried.
