Abby just had her 6th birthday party this past weekend, and it was quite the event! Because she is very opinionated, planning these types of things can be a little tricky. She wants very definite input and will absolutely let you know if what you suggest doesn’t fit her image of the whole affair.
Originally, I threw out the idea of a Frozen birthday party, since she is totally obsessed with the movie and *literally* knows the soundtrack by heart.
She looked at me like I had three heads and practically rolled her eyes up to the sky as she said, “Uh, no”.
So, then I suggested maybe a Sophia The First party since I know she likes that show a lot. You would have thought I suggested throwing hot lava at the party guests as they arrived by her reaction to that idea.
I dug deep, y’all and tried to sound very casual as I threw out the idea to make it an Olympics theme to celebrate the upcoming Winter Games.
Abby was immediately on board and said, “That is a great idea Mom!”
I ran with it. An Olympics style invitation. Olympics themed party favors and gift bags. You get the idea.
Cut to picking out the cake.
Me: Here’s an Olympics cake. It is so cute!
Me: No?!? But we are having an Olympics party.
Abby: I don’t want an Olympics cake.
Me: Wow, um, well, how about Spongebob then?
Abby: Okay, fine…but I really wish I’d had a Frozen party. Why couldn’t I have had a Frozen party? You know I love that movie.
