My 'baby' is now 10 and loving every single minute of it! I truly don't know how time goes by so quickly, but I do enjoy these wonderful days with my 'older kids'! I know everyone always seems to miss the baby & toddler days, but I don't know... it's really nice now that my kids are more independent and happy all the time. There are no temper tantrums, no diapers, no screaming, (little) arguing, they sleep all night, they don't throw food, we can pick up and go easily, it's just really amazing.
Today we're taking it easy with Mya wanting to play outside all day, as per usual. She is independent, sassy, outgoing, cat obsessed, loves live theatre like her mother, (we go as often as we can!) and absolutely loves being outside morning till night, and is truly in her element in nature!!
She's asked for a "BIG birthday dinner" consisting of roasted chicken, potatoes, veggies & gravy. We'll have cake to finish that off with her party being on Saturday for her and her friends. Her party will consist of a stuff animal stuffing activitiy, pizza, snacks, decorating cupcakes and playing games. I'll have a housefull of little girls so she should have a lot of fun and I'll be ready to call it a day at dinner time. Hahaha!!
For her gifts, she received this beautiful "Cinderella Birthday" dress and had to wear it for a bit this morning to show it off. We bought this one and a longer blue and white Cinderella Disney dress from the Disney Shop after Christmas on sale. They've been on her *wishlist* for a long, long time. She also received a new kitten (stuffed, 'cause one is enough for us!) a beautiful handmade coin purse with $10.00 inside to hold her allowance that I bought from a friend on Instagram, a handmade dream catcher I purchased at the last Merry Makers Fair, some outdoor chalk and neon chalk paint, and a new skirt from Carters that has a glittery sheen to it, so she loves it.
She received a bunch of outdoor toys piled into a big bucket from my sister that her and her friends have been playing with around the clock as well! She also received a nice gift card to Chapters which we'll go spend next week sometime as Maria has one too! So the girls are itching to get to the book store... who can blame them!?
So far she's enjoying her birthday which will be stretched out till Saturday apparently. *wink*
On that note I'm off for now, my to do runneth over as per usual so I'd better be productive and see what I can accomplish today!! Have a wonderful day!
