We just had Mallory’s fifth birthday party (after having to postpone it a week due to illness). I think it was a big hit with her friends and her. Mallory invited four classmates (plus little sisters of two them who are Chelsea’s age). We did a princess make-over party which I was only able to pull off with the help of the other moms.
One of the moms is really good at doing little girls’ hair, so I asked her (ahead of time) if she wouldn’t mind doing all of the girls’ hair. Thankfully she said she’d love to and she did an excellent job!
Then, the rest of the moms either painted fingernails/toenails or put a little bit of make-up on the girls.
We added five candles to a big chocolate-y rice crispie treat (made with ‘normal’ semi-sweet chocolate chips that just happen not to have dairy. These chocolate chips are from Trader Joe’s and one of Chelsea’s preschool teachers bought a bag for Chelsea when she was on vacation. Isn’t that sweet?) and we sang Happy Birthday to Mallory.
I asked Mallory what she wished for, and without missing a beat, she said, “a udah-corn (unicorn).”
Then Mallory got to open up her gifts.
Her gifts were either princess-themed or Barbie-themed and she couldn’t have been more thrilled.
The party was a lot of fun and it was neat to see the girls so excited about being pampered for the day.
