Having a ball in the ball pit

Leave a comment

Yeah, so, my mighty, mighty good boy Calvin has found a new happy place, and that place is a ball pit.


Calvin’s friend Albert had his fourth birthday party at a place called The Coop in South San Francisco. We could barely get Calvin’s shoes off fast enough for him to get into that ball pit. He LOVES it. The next day we were going to another birthday party at a park. I told Calvin we were going to a birthday party.

“I’m going to jump into the balls,” he said.

Here’s an awesome thing to know about The Coop: They allow booze. I know, right? All the parents drinking beer and mimosas while watching their kids drown in a ball pit. So, say hello to my new favorite place!


Last year, we went to Albert’s third birthday party at Peek-A-Boo Factory in West Portal that also turned into Calvin’s favorite place. We immediately copied Albert’s parents, Lucy and Richard, and hosted Calvin’s birthday party at the Peek-A-Boo Factory. I will not be surprised if we end up stealing this party idea, too, because we are totally single white femaling this family.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
