Despite my efforts, my child will not stop growing and aging. She’s going to be four in a few days so we threw her a party this weekend. It was awesome! She had a blast, was so good (I still have my fingers crossed every day for four being better than three), and thanked and hugged each guest after I read their card to her. It was a wonderful day, and I managed to keep my own anxiety about having 30 people in our house at bay, so I had fun, too. Air punches all around.
I want to be that mom who perfectly plans a themed party for my kid. I do. I have friends who do it and I see people do it on Pinterest and god do I wish I could be that and do that. But I’m just not that person. It took me 4 years to accept. I think buying some Target plates, some balloons and 5 pom poms and calling it good really helped me to enjoy the day. Harper had a great day, and that is all that mattered. It helps that we have so many amazing people in our lives who want to celebrate her.
We decided to make it a pancake party, which was a huge hit. It was at 11am so everyone could still nap and go about their plans for the day afterwards.
p.s. I got my hair done – no more ombre + extensions. My hair hit it’s limit and decided to stop growing, so I made it grow. My friend and hair goddess Carly did it all for me and if you’re in the Puget Sound area, you need her in your life. Trust me.
