My son’s best friend at daycare is a boy named Joshua whose family is from Mexico. “Joshie” as he is better known, is two months younger than Jackson and has been in his class since they were infants. We were invited to Joshie’s 3rd birthday party this past weekend and Jackson literally could not wait for the party to start.
I myself was also a little excited about the party. Truth be told I had never been to a Mexican fiesta before and was interested to see what was in store. I can’t even begin to tell you my disappointment when we arrived and I saw a grill with burgers and hot dogs on it. I thought for sure we’d be feasting on homemade tamales and tacos.
My disappointment was quickly cured though when I looked in the corner and saw the biggest piñata I have ever seen in my life! A life size clown sat smiling at me and I knew a good time was about to be had. As I listened to Selena singing in the background I said to Joshie’s grandmother that I had never seen such a large piñata. To which she replied, “oh that’s nothing, you should see the ones we have in Mexico.” When is that party and how do we get an invite??
