June is a party time for us. Our family doesn't celebrate just one birthday in June, but about seven. Attending that obligatory NCT course didn't just teach us about birth choices and how to put a nappy on a dolly, but also gave us six play mates to party with in June.
Over the last weekend we had not just one, but two birthday parties. On Sunday the theme was Teddy Bear picnic, so we dressed our little mouse in a party dress and grabbed a teddy and off we went.
A picnic blanket, little party hats, a ball pit, little trikes, juice, crisps, teddies to cuddle and lots of little play mates - what more could a two year old want from a party?
If you are a little princess who loves her accessories, you might also like to have a new pair of shoes. As we popped in town earlier to get our little girl a few birthday gifts, she picked a new pair of sandals from H&M. She loved them, and proceeded to put them on in the shop. Sat on the floor, took her shoes and socks off, put the new pair on and tried to walk away. Luckily for our little cheeky chops, they went perfectly with her Minnie Mouse party dress and were the right size too.
It was lovely seeing a few of our NCT babies together, playing, chattering and toddling away. While they don't really play together, but rather play alongside each other, it was lovely to see them sit together, share their crisps, run up and down the garden and have lots of fun. Together and alongside each other.
Looking forward to June 2016 - I wonder how many parties we will get to attend then!
What did you think of the Minnie Mouse dress? Do you still meet your NCT buddies?
