My little man is turning six next month. Six. Wow. That is crazy talk.
And yet, we've promised a small birthday party to celebrate this 'six' thing. I mean, come on now, who said he could turn six so soon?
We've talked about party games (to which he replied: "Nope, no games!" and the kid in me responded: "What?! No games? What kind of a party is that?").
We've compromised on:
- Musical chairs
- Pin the tail on the donkey
But there's to be no pass the parcel. I tried renaming it to: Pass the gift. Nope. Pass the multi-layered present. Nope. I'll keep working on that one.
Maybe I can wrangle a pinata?
We've talked about looking at the good old Australian Women's Weekly cake cookbook together to decide on a cake. That's a date!
I've been checking out the Queen of inspiration, Martha Stewart's website. I'm sure I'll attain entertaining prowess by osmosis.
Anyone got any birthday party suggestions? I'm thinking we have it at a park - or is that ker-azy?
