I can't stand when people are very picky. Especially if they will only eat junk food. Yuck.

I'm not sure if I can link here so I'll just say I really like the song Evil Boy by Die Antwoord. It's about male circumcision in Africa. And they made an awesome video (not for the faint of heart)....

My son was able to do a thorough enough job wiping himself around 4.5. Before that I usually had to assist or he would have poo stains in his underwear and complain of an itchy bottom.

I use time outs and loss of priveleges with my (almost) 6 yo. This is only after repeated attempts at warning and redirection. I think time outs really help him to calm down when he's too worked up....

I would have it after lunch. That way you can just serve drinks and light snacks like veggies & dip, pretzels etc. I'd say 2-3 hours is plenty. One thing you didn't mention is a pinata. You can get...
