It’s amazing how FAST time flies! Just yesterday my babies were in diapers, and now my youngest will be entering his last official year of “childhood.” He will be a full fledged teenager next year. It’s SO disheartening; they weren’t supposed to grow up this quick! To commemorate this very special birthday (the final “Kid” celebration), I am putting together an unforgettable party. Life has been hectic lately, time has gotten away from me, and I definitely got a late start in the planning process, but I have faith that I can pull it off.
My boy had originally requested a Space theme party, so that was the direction in which I had allowed my imagination to go in, but then he told me that he wanted a riddle filled scavenger hunt like I had done for his sister on her birthday. He was hoping that I could sweeten the deal and hide a clue up in our tree so he could climb up and get it. I informed him that DEFINITELY wouldn’t be happening, because if I even ATTEMPTED to climb a tree now, I’d either get stuck, or I’d fall out and booger myself up. That’s the last thing the family needs to deal with, and the way our year’s been going…
I actually might end up surprising him since I have a ladder now (I’ll make sure to have a spotter JUST IN CASE). He’d be thrilled to death; my little monkey!
I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been stretched so thin lately, but trying to combine these 2 concepts has been a bit difficult for me to do this go around. I generally don’t have problems when I sit down to plan a party, as my brainstorming sessions normally result in an overabundance of fun ideas, but here I sit, trying to work my magic at the very last second. Anyway, I’m gonna scram so I can get the house decorated, the cake made and decorated, gifts wrapped, clues hidden, and the birthday dinner prepared. I hope that you have an unforgettable weekend; we will.
Love you bunches!
