The Birthday that wasn't

Simon's 4th Birthday party didn't happen.  For the past month or so his behavior at daycare had been terrible.  His rap sheet included blatant disobedience, laughing at his teachers when they asked him to behave, slapping his teachers and even choking a fellow student.  After repeated warnings he wouldn't take our threats to cancel his party seriously, so we had to follow through.  So we set the table for his party and then he watched as we through everything into a garbage bag.  Sandy and I were more upset than he was.
