We are, and dh has the week off so we're doing "holiday at home" packed lunches at the ready its day trips each day and swimming if we get back in good time each afternoon. The last time he had time off was chicken pox week and he spent the time fetching/carrying whilst we were house bound!
Half term started on Friday for us. DD is back on Monday but DS has an extra day off so we're planning a day of fun for just the two of us. Thinking I might take him to the cinema and then maybe out for lunch as DD is in for 5 hours that day.
I was indeed out on the town last night. Friends were late so I'd had a good few cocktails before we even started eating last night and then carried on until about 2am! The alcohol did it's usual trick though and I was up at 6.30. I've done well today on 4 hours sleep although I'm knackered now.
Mum was down last night to babysit and DSis and Nieces came down today. We've BBQed and played in the garden in the glorious weather. It's been really, really lovely.
Just thought I would pop back on to see what everyone is up to now. You all helped me to plan a mr tumble party for my daughters last year so I thought I'd have a nosy at what you're planning now.
Think this was a mistake though as I've now decided I want to do a rainbow party for my girls this year and am deciding whether I should throw my partner a party for his 30th in July (I don't think he wants one but reading all your plans I'm getting a bit carried away).
It's so nice that these threads are still going and you're all still here helping everyone plan amazing parties
I love it too and I think it will be quite easy as I can just look for bright coloured tableware, baloons etc without having to pay extra for characters. My eldest saw me googling things earlier and was so excited and said she wants a rainbow party, that's her convinced now just to work on dp....
I know. And i spent hoouuurrrss with my hand on my head and people kept waving at me thinking i was waving at them! And hospital said "lets put you in a sideroom to save your embarrassment as you do look ridiculous!"
When i rang the outofhours dr at 4.30am he said go to hospital. I said no they'll think im a time waster! He said "no my love, they will laugh at you"
You're on thread #5?? I was a part of the first two!!
Help needed again please.
DS1 is going to be 4, DD1 is going to be 1 on the same day and I can't think of a decent party theme that encompasses both. I am doing 'sugar & spice' for her Christening, so I am staying away from pinks. DS is into Spider-Man (sort of) and got very excited about having a superhero party - I'm thinking capes as favours, masks as invites. How do I make that 1yo girl friendly? I know she could be supergirl, but in my head, whenever I think of a superhero party, I just think of old style comic books and it's all very boyish to me. Is there a complimentary girly theme I could use? Or is there a way that I can feminise the theme? Or is all of this 'boy' thing in my head?
stealth and I both have dragon obsessed DDs so I'm not sure we're very good at the whole boy/girl divide thing and I'd say Superheros was a brilliant theme for both. I can just imagine your DD in a baby grow with a cape attached looking very, very cute. Maybe swing it towards the Incredibles and you and your DH can dress up too?
There are plenty of girl superheroes - batgirl, supergirl, lots of X(wo)men, cat woman, She-ra, wonderwoman - I'd go for it as is.
Shirley hasn't been around for a while but I do still see her on FB occasionally. She made a kiss ass cake for her DS last week.
