One of B’s co-workers is a husband and wife with two boys (the oldest is Squidgems’s age) who are both from Hong Kong/Canada. They live in our building and speak English, so we try to be friendly with them, but don’t run into them too often. Their son was turning three and invited Squidgems to his birthday party. They ended up renting a room at the Happy Baby Store next to our grocery store. Squidgems had a great time (except a brief period when he realized he didn’t get to blow out the candles on the cake, and when it was picture time).
