I kind of swore off doing birthday parties for my daughter Willa, except for having family and close friends at our house. But this year was different because she actually ASKED when her birthday party was. So sweet, yet OMG! She just turned three! I couldn’t believe that an almost three year old would ask for a party. I thought kids didn’t ask for parties until they were older. Anyway, I totally caved and we had a birthday party at Imagine (adventure world). It’s the perfect place for toddler birthday parties, or just to go play on a rainy day. Imagine is clean, new and fun. Little kids can play dress up. They can pretend to be everything from veterinarians and firemen, go grocery shopping at the market, sweep the house or mow the lawn, drive Little Tikes cars and play on a beautiful train. The train (and train table) was Willa’s favorite thing to be on. All my sweet Willa asked for was to have cupcakes with her friends. And a guitar. ha! My husband was excited and got her a kids guitar. It’s absolutely hilarious and melts my heart. She has been singing about Minnie Mouse and making up songs. Again, who knew a three year old would be so opinionated and into these kinds of things. Being a parent is so hard, but times these like make it all worth it don’t they? Here’s to celebrating the joyous and chaotic times. I can’t imagine life any other way.
