she was asleep five minutes later

You know, after three hours of sweet, close-to-unchaperoned freedom, pluck-a-duck and plinko and sucker pull and the cake walk and having a hot dog and your own piece of chocolate pie *and* a root beer and guessing how many pieces of bubble gum are in a jar and bidding on an auction and getting two tattoos and playing Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution and scoring a Dora movie (although your mother The Great Big Meanie wouldn't let you bring home all six that were there) and eating a luridly pink sugar covered bunny cookie and winning a stuffed pink duck and talking to lots of people and seeing friends and running around and around joyfully weaving through a sea of grown-up legs? Sometimes a girl just has to come home, pull on her cuddly tiger costume, and veg out.
With her new friend the duck, of course.

Pah-rice-less!
I get the feeling it was more than a birthday party going on in your hood.

That sounds like a heck of a day.

My son has that same costume.

She is so sweet.

I bet she was asleep in 5 minutes! Dude! That was a DAY!

And you know that it would take an adult at least a full weekend to recover from a day of activity like that...
