|She loves a bit of sparkle|
My beautiful (not so little) Miss H is turning 4 in just over a week! She seems to have grown up in a flash and a blink. When I think back to when we first arrived in Australia (which was only 2 years ago) she was still in nappies with that cheeky little smile and those chubby little legs! Now she has the hip-wiggle down to a fine art and knows all the words to Taylor Swift’s ‘I knew you were Trouble’!
She has some very DEFINITE ideas about what she would like for her birthday party this year and I’m trying my best to keep up! My biggest challenge is going to be re-producing her extravagant ideas on my not so extravant budget.
After swapping from a unicorn theme to a mermaid theme to a Lalaloopsy theme, then back to the unicorn theme, we have finally settled on mermaids! Phew! Now all I have to do is organise the details – in just two weeks!
“Mummy, when it my birthday can I have a big mermaid cake that looks just like Arial, with five fish, but not Nemo, and no sharks! Also can I have a mermaid Barbie sitting next to her because they are best friends?” “All that to go on the cake?” I enquire, slightly nervously! “YES” she nods. Well, no pressure for me then!! Having my thermomix means I can bake the cake, no probs – but decorate it…………I think I might need re-enforcements.
Thank goodness for PINTEREST!! I have spent the last hour collecting different ideas for ‘Mermaid themed birthday party’s’ and will pass them over to the boss tonight when she is home from Kindy. Hopefully I can persuade her to pick some of the less complicated ones.
Fortunately I’ve managed to convince her that the park is a MUCH better place to hold a party than Mermaidia. (For those of you that are a little confused – Mermaidia is the magical underwater land where Barbie the mermaid lives). I’m just praying that it doesn’t rain on the day, as right now I have no plan B. (All suggestions are most welcome).
