Today brings with it the excitement of Mili’s 3rd birthday. She has been so excited about this birthday and has not yet grasped the concept that it is a birth DAY and not a birth MONTH!
We had her party on Saturday. Thank goodness the rain stayed away as I was convinced I was being punished for the sins of my youth when it was still raining at 10am and the party was due to start in 2 hours. Luckily all cleared and the weather turned out to be very pleasant.
The theme for this year was BUNNIES. Not that Mili was too chuffed as after buying loads of goodies for the party she informed me when I showed her the cutest grass bunny: “I scared.” Hmm! Next year I might run the theme past her beforehand.
As usual it turned more into an adult social gathering and for me the chance to see friends I might only see once a year. What did strike me and gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling was that we have a VERY diverse pool of friends. They come in all shapes, sizes, ages, colours and professions. Put them together though and everyone just does what they do best and enjoy’s themselves. The standard joke between them now when leaving is : “See you again next year May.”
Off to school she headed this morning with cake and sweets in tow for another party. The challenge for us now is to convince her that her birthday is finally over!
