1. Score a bundle of awesome party favours at a great price halfway around the world. They're heavy but hey, there's a price for perfection. And they ARE perfect.
3. Daydream about the kids having a blast with their party favours.
4. Forget to pack them in your suitcase when you leave for home.
5. Go ahead with party anyway without party favours
Ed's note: Poppy and Calla's nana turns 90 next week. I'm sure she and her friends will have a fab party and enjoy their super fun colourful balloon wands.
Yes I bought lots of giant bubble wands at a fantastic price. No I didn't stop to think that I was depriving other kids in Montreal the joys of giant bubble fun. Yes I believe in retribution.
If you're wondering about the drawings: I've so been inspired by this mum. Her writing is hilarious and her drawings sometimes make me pee in my pants. But before you go all copycat-kiss-the-rat on me, you may like to read her FAQ page where she states that she 'is not the first ever human to draw pictures', and that she too was inspired by and accused of copying someone else.
