Okay, so my baby isn't a baby anymore, or so she keeps telling me. "Momma, I am 4 now. I am a big girl and can do it all by myself." Of course you can, princess!
She was so excited for her party last night. All day long she kept wanting to help me set up, help with the cake, help with this and that. I haven't seen her this excited except for Christmas. It was her first big kid party, and she wanted to have a slumber party soooo bad. We decided to have a pretend slumber party and we decorated the table like a bed. Complete with pillows and stuffed animals. The bar was also a bed, minus the animals. There were streamers everywhere and it smelled of fresh baked cake. I don't know why, since I baked the cake the night before.
She came up to me after we had everything set up and told me thank you for making everything so beautiful mommy. Of course, I melted. It made all the late nights and stress just float away. That's all I ever wanted for her special day, was for her to have a great birthday.
And you know, for 4 year olds they sure know how to act at a slumber party. They were in the bedroom, door closed, my 80's music blaring and there was about 10 different things going on at the same time. It was so stinking cute! They had a pillow fight, played musical pillows, made homemade slipper socks and were sent home with a scary book, glow in the dark bracelet and a toothbrush. They all seemed to have a really good time.
