Now He Is Seven


Bob had two requests for his birthday. He asked that we have the party at the indoor playground at the mall, and he asked that we have a theme. At first he thought he would like the theme to be his favorite show, "Sponge Bob Square Pants." After much consideration he finally decided the theme should be his favorite band, Black Sabbath. Related: There is no Black Sabbath aisle at Party City.


Bob helped put together a playlist of his favorite songs to make into CDs for party favors. Bob's musical tastes lean heavy into the 1978.


 Bob's godmother also made these rad chocolate guitars to give out.


Kids arrived and did things in this thing.


Party Room B was decorated.


The cupcakes were unpacked.


Mr. Rosenberg and his friend, Mr. Kwong, donned wigs and played "Iron Man" and "Happy Birthday." Party Room B has never rocked so hard.


No, that's actually not Howard Stern, but rather a quite fetching Mr. Rosenberg.


A number seven candle was blown out by the birthday boy.


Bob said it was his best party ever. And I didn't even have to wear my Princess Leia costume.

  3. This cracks me up so much. You are an incredibly loving and caring mother. Maybe by next year he'll have discovered the Beatles. Not that there's anything wrong with Black Sabbath!

  4. Wow. You are a great mom. And I can't believe Bob Rosenberg is 7. Sniff.

  6. I can't believe Bob is 7.

    GREAT party, but I admit that I missed the donut ears this year.

  7. But you'll bring the Princess Leia costume to BlogHer, right? Not sure I'm going to be there, otherwise.

  9. Is Bob single?

    That sounded creepy. I am asking for my daughter. I swear.

  10. This is hilarious. I just keep picturing the looks on the faces of the other parents when their kids brought home those CDs. I wonder how many of Bob's friends even knew who Black Sabbath was before today. Most of my 15-year-old students wouldn't know. (I do have one boy who's into classic rock, though.)

    1. Bob taught some of his friends the main chorus to Iron Man before the party but most of the folks there were new to this. We'll see if there's a sudden drop in play-date invites...

  12. So much awesome! Based on the play list, your son and my 50-year-old husband apparently have much in common.

  16. He did have The Beatles on there: Helter Skelter. Maybe Come Together or Revolution #9 might appeal?

  17. I think Bob and I need to be buds, and I really wish you would adopt me.
