I have 3 kids with birthdays within 10 days of each other (yes, I know what that implies...) Up until now, I've stuck the older two together with unisex-themed parties: the princess and the frog, circus, and little chefs.
They all worked out great.
But, (and nothing good ever comes from the word "but") this year they each want their own parties, with their own friends.
Sofia wants a ballerina party. Thomas wants a pirate party.
Maia, who will be turning 1, will be getting her party-on woodland-style. And, since I'm already exhausted trying to keep track of the kids' numerous suggestions for their parties ("you hafta have a REAAAAL plank at a pirate party!"), I decided to start off by making some decorations for sweet little Maia's party. Because she has no expectations, doesn't rattle off demands, let me choose the party theme, and stares at me (in what can only be described as) in awe when I show her what I've made... lol.
What do you think? I'm not pretending that I can sew, by the way. I thought it would be a totally relaxing experience, stitching him up while watching Glee...pfffft! Dumb embroidery floss that kept knotting up on itself... and low-grade-pillow-stuffing that wouldn't stuff right (because you know it's not me, lol!) Anyways, it was fun (now that it's done) and I think I'll mostly stick to paper from now on...
