What a week! Sam’s birthday party is on Saturday, as in, TOMORROW so we’re in major party planning crackdown mode here in the little monster household. I actually had to
beg kindly request for our sitter Miss Kim to come by for a few hours this morning so I could decorate the house. Sam requested, with a little subtle suggesting from me, to have a “Mermaid Party”. When you have a birthday that often falls in the middle of a heat wave (it was 101 yesterday!) water activities are a must. Throw in a mermaid theme & you can get a fix for 3 yr old’s princess obsession too.
Since I’m giving myself a pass on cooking or baking anything homemade I decided to set my domestic sights on transforming our home into an underwater princess oasis. If I can get half of the ideas in my head actually up & hanging on the walls this could be pretty awesome. (I bought an unspeakable amount of turquiose, lime green & purple tulle, netting & glitter) I got a little headstart yesterday during naptime with this mermaid wreath to welcome our guests & yes, I already know, it’s a bit on the gaudy side. But that’s just how Sam likes it. (see pink clip-on hair extension at end of post)I figured she’d be so busy with her friends presents on Saturday that there’d be no harm in going ahead and giving her one of mine. I found this mermaid costume costume on Amazon & it’s so much bettter than the Disney store one she used to have. (not to mention half the price) I’m really happy with it & considering she’s worn it for 2 straight days I’m thinking she likes it too.
And the photo shoot is officially over. What time is that sitter coming again?
