My baby’s 4th birthday party will be a Minnie Mouse (with some Mickey) themed party. Her 1st birthday party was butterfly themed, and it was extremely detailed and took me over 2 months to plan.
She didn’t have a 2nd birthday party. I was really sick with the flu, she was battling allergies, and I just never got into birthday party planning mode. I wrote her a poem, while sick in bed with the flu. When we were well we took her to Chuck E Cheese.
Her 3rd birthday party was detailed upon detailed Doc McStuffins party, taking me about 2 months to plan.
Here we are, with March 7th being just a couple of weeks away. I have not officially started planning anything. So this party will definitely be small and simple. After her Doc McStuffins party, throughout the year she would often mention how she wants to go to her birthday party. We would have to try to gently explain to her that her birthday party went “bye-bye”, but she will have another one when she turns 4-years-old. Of course, a newly turned 3-year-old just can’t quite grasp the concept of time, actually neither can most adults. Time is a complex and mysterious phenomena.
I certainly believe in making the most of this precious time when kids are little and everything seems so magical to them. So, since her Doc McStuffins party she would love to have pretend parties, picnics, and tea parties with her stuffed animals, cousins, parents, or whoever else would love to join in.
But in a few days, we will start preparing for her real party. This will be quite the experience, as she will be able to help with the decorations. Furthermore, I am following her lead as I let her interest, passions, and things she’s most excited about guide me in deciding what to include in the party.
