Things that only work at a 5 year old bday party

When it came time for cake I couldn't find anything to light the candles with. Other adults in the room distracted the children with a game of "who likes...?" while I franctically ran (read: waddled) around the house opening drawers and cupboards.

So...I came downstairs and said "Who likes to play pretend?" Every 5 year old girl yelled a resounding YES!!!

So I pulled out a plastic french fry and introduced everybody to my "match". I "lit" the candles, we sang Happy Birthday and Mster blew them all out. We cut the cake and nobody made any comment about the fact that there wasn't actually fire.
