today we filled and capped off the dragon's eggs for pooka's birthday party. she was delirious with joy. she wanted to help so badly, but then wandered off once kisu sat down to show her how to do it. she is adamant that no adults be allowed at the party, not even to help organize and clean. she wants to do everything: decorate, set the table, serve the food, clean up. we keep telling her that it will be more fun for her to play with her friends, but she seems skeptical. i told her that after her friend party is over, the adults will all arrive to celebrate some more, but she doesn't seem too keen on that. i guess i'll have to accept her presents.
