Pony rides, a petting zoo, a cotton candy machine, Ben and Jerry’s professional scoopers, a paint station, a knock the fish through the wall station, and 32 of his closest toddler friends all came to Sonoma to be a part of Matias’s 2nd Birthday Party. His mother wanted to give him the party she never got to have, and lucky for me, I got to document it all….
…right up until nap time.
Besides seeing how much sugar could be consumed in one day, the most amazing aspect for me was being surrounded by toddlers who spoke two or more languages. It was incredible to see how their little brains switched back and forth so easily. While I, and my linguistically handicapped tongue, couldn’t even remember the basic Spanish I once knew. And the few times I attempted to speak, I ended up tripping over my words so miserably that I gave up and assumed my role as the silent observer. Needless to say, I was in awe and inspired to get back into my Spanish classes.
