A few notes:
1. Why not let Elizabeth go to the party instead of making her try to sleep through the noise? Since she is dressed in purple, she will fit right in with all the other girls.
2. I seem to remember this exact same thing happening last year for Michael’s 12th birthday and at that time Elizabeth was promised her own birthday party or sleepover. I don’t think the Patterson parents ever kept that promise.
3. John thinks, “… and I’ve been wishing lately that you weren’t so big!!” Let me tell you John, it just gets worse. I remember the day I pulled my back trying to pick up my son after he got too big to carry.
