A recent Groupon offer for a bounce house rental had me remembering my friend Michele's first birthday celebration for her daughter, Sasha. She and her husband, Babar, took over their entire cul-de-sac with every birthday option their party planner, "We Celebrate," had to offer: circus performers, cotton candy machines, a mini ferris wheel, carnival games, popcorn, magicians, stilt walkers and yes, the infamous bounce house. I specifically remember Michelle placing Sasha in the middle of an empty bounce house and there she sat, alone, not knowing what to do and with no concept of the hub-bub that surrounded her. There sat this tiny baby in the center of what must have seemed like chaos to her. I will never forget the sight. While everyone else was having a ball, she seems so lost in a sea of loud noises and a bounce house big enough for a state fair. To this day mom and dad name this as one of her best birthdays ever. I'm not so sure..
