A’s 5th birthday is coming up quickly and I am busy planning her party! I cannot believe that she is already 5…but more on her and her 5 years on her actual birthday.
About a week before her 4th birthday, she asked for a Grinch party. There was no way that I could have thrown it together at that point and besides, we didn’t have a ‘friends’ party for her last year because we were traveling and celebrated with her grandma and poppy. But, I had told her that we could do that next year if she still wanted to. I did not actually expect that she would still want the same thing a year later but said it more so that she knew I wasn’t shutting her idea down, just that it wasn’t going to work in that moment.
Fast forward a year later and she is having her Grinch party! She has literally been talking about her Grinch birthday for the past YEAR. It is a little bit of a difficult theme because her birthday is in September….not near Christmas and as one would assume, most Grinch party supplies or ideas are centered around Christmas. Oh well, mom to the rescue!! We will make the Fall Grinch party a thing 😉 I am pretty excited about it because it is “all her” and not something that 5 of her other friends are going to choose for their parties too.
