Picking a theme for Mai’s 3rd birthday was an easy decision. You have all heard me talk about our daughter’s love for Play-Doh. It only made sense to celebrate her special day with her favorite activity.
It was no easy feat getting ready for the party. As I tried to turn our home into a Play-Doh filled wonderland, our Play-doh crazed daughter chased me around the house trying to get her hands into some of the decorations & activities.
“Mama, can I have that Play-doh?”
“This is for your party.Why don’t you play with what you already have?”
“Mama, you need to learn to share.”
How can you argue with that logic? I did learn to share that day & allowed her a little bit for playtime while preparing for her bash. It was a busy week. We had a lot to do.
Decorations were hung.
Play-Doh was made.
Goodie bags were put out.
Cupcakes were baked.
Activities were planned.
After many weeks of planning & days of preparation the big day finally came. We had one excited girl on our hands. She was so eager for her party that she woke mommy & daddy up at 6am, which turned out to be a blessing since we still had much to do. We managed to hold her back from attacking all of the Play-Doh until her first guests arrived & then it was game on. All of the kids dove right in.
I would like to tell you that they were able to contain all of their creations to the one designated table, but alas the whole house became their own personal Play-doh factory. They crafted hearts & cars & Play-doh cupcakes.
Despite the trail of little Play-Doh footprints tracked throughout the house, it was a beautiful day. Our house was filled with children’s laughter & a lot of joy today. My heart is happy.
