I’m running so far behind, I’m not sure I’m coming or going.
Three weeks ago, we celebrated our little one’s sixth birthday and I have yet to document this momentous event with pictures.
This time, I did it differently. The first five of her birthdays, we have celebrated at home with friends in an old fashioned birthday party. I’m a bit old fashioned actually and I have learned that when having big parties and renting out places, serving 3 decker cakes, and having lots of hoopla, this only gets harder the older they get. So, we have celebrated at home, with homemade cupcakes and games.
And now here comes the BUT.
But this year…….
She wanted to have her party at the gymnastics center. If you’ve been paying any bit of attention, you’ll know that she is crazy about emojis right now. So of course, it had to be an emoji party. She has pined over other little girls’ fancy, two layer cakes and asked if she could have a big cake. So, I bit the bullet and went with it, no matter how much it went against my grain.
Who’s to say my grain’s going the right direction, anyway?
It was a ton of fun, very stress free for me, and dare I say…..easy.
The kids got to jump, run, swing, balance, and hang like monkeys.
I even did my part by making some “poop” cupcakes. Of course, Emma helped.
Another birthday in the books.
