Today is the big par-tay for the twinions.
As I started planning, shopping, committing to two dinosaur cakes, my anxiety levels rocket through the roof, I consciously stopped myself.
Life’s stressful enough as it is, right?
For the twin ion’s birthday afternoon last week, we decided to go for celebratory fish n chips down the bay. It was a perfect summer’s afternoon. As Mr Surfer and I watched our munchkins squeal with delight as they plunged into the cool ocean water, we reminded ourselves of what was really important about turning four.
It wasn’t the extravagant presents or fretting over what theme the party should be.
Squishing toes through the warm sand, watching in awe as your feet sink and disappear as the gentle waves wash over them.
It’s the simple joys of being a kid; the exhilaration of discovering anything, everything and everywhere.
Chasing pesky seagulls, giggling helplessly as you pretend to also soar through the clear, blue sky with them.
Letting your untapped imagination and innocence collide, swerve through the esplanade, joining the gentle ocean breeze.
Here’s to a relaxing, fun-filled party. Here’s to celebrating with family and friends, sharing some laughs along the way.
Remembering that it’s just about the seagulls. Those crazy gulls.
What’re you up to this Sunday?
