It’s less than a week until the “twinions” turn five. FIVE.
No doubt, time will fly by before they will soon be dubbed “the twin-agers
Then again, I doubt if I’ll still be blogging by then.
You. Never. Know.
As per usual, we are completely unprepared for their birthday celebrations.
K-Bear is still crying over the sad fact Christmas is over.
Despite explaining that there’s a good chance he’s getting his own “Shark Play Set”, just like the one he’s obsessed with at daycare, almost 5 year old logic doesn’t seem to grasp that receiving for his birthday, isn’t as long of a wait.
“Noooooo!!! I want it for Christmas, OKAY???!!!”
Unperturbed Nunu couldn’t care less either way. Just don’t touch his Stegosaurus or Triceratop, OKAY???
If there’s anything that’s going to be a constant family tradition in our household, it will be that the twinions will ALWAYS be getting a birthday party…
3 weeks after their actual birthday.
They should be so lucky we’re even throwing one.
There was, after all a four year recovery, er I mean hiatus after their first.
While last year’s wasn’t a complete shambles, the memory of my shirtless husband slaving away in the kitchen at 2am, decorating two dinosaur cakes with Maltesers, green food colouring and choc drops has been burned on my mind.
That and of course the moment I realized that over a dozen preschoolers were bashing the Thomas Pinata to no avail because…I was supposed to fill it up with LOLLIES!!
Come on! Buy the Pinata AND the lollies? What happened to “All in One” deals?
Whatever shin dig we come up with this year, invoices will NOT be sent to last minute no-shows.
Seriously. Some people.
Anyway, the twinions are turning five.
Fünf Jahre alt. 五歳. Lima tahun.
FIVE YEARS OLD.
Someone, hold me.
Any SIMPLE ideas for five year old birthday themes? Did you hear about the parents who invoiced the no-show parents for their kid’s ski party? Were you Team Party Parents or Team No-Show Parents?
