she's a 6 year old.
her party took about a week to plan.
i tried my darndest to keep it 'thematic' and pitched
to her 'mayumi's SPA-rty' which would've been all
things spa...like massages, manicures, tea, finger food, etc...
she scrunched her eyebrows and said WHAT THE???
she wanted 'mayumi's disco party' with glow sticks and fireworks blasting on repeat.
i scrunched my eyebrows and said WHAT THE???
and after a couple more WHAT THE'S??? between the 2 of us
we finally agreed on mayumi's 'WHAT THE???!!!' party.
which was basically A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING.
i must say, decorating the house with her was the best part
of the whole experience. even better, i think, than the actual party.
we were a team!!!!
she helped with the streamers, balloons, GLUE GUN(!!!), table setting, invitations & posters.
she really felt useful, which is important to kids and humans in general, yes?
on the day of, it was quite a hectic 3 hours i must say.
would i do this again?
she was so very happy.
