Melanie turned six this month and, since she really wanted it Disney themed, I partnered with Disney to throw her a #NowMoreThanEver birthday party!
Melanie started kindergarten and is struggling HARD. I’m getting massive behavioral reports from school and I’m just… having a hard time with it all. I mean, my daughter sucks at Kindergarten.
My daughter is a HUGE Hulk fan. Like, HUGE! She’s just loves anything “Hulk Smash” and we watch “The Avengers” at least once a week. So, when it came time to plan her third birthday party, I decided to go with an Avengers theme. As the Patron Saint of Slacker Moms, I kept things VERY simple but still wanted to have a few special touches. As the official Cheap Ass of my family, I also wanted to keep it affordable. So, the idea of doing a swimming party with a superhero theme was born. Check out the rest of the post for tips and ideas from Melanie’s Marvel Avengers Birthday Party!
It’s been a long time since I just sat down and wrote about my girl. She’s a toddler now and will be three in July. In August, she’ll become a big sister to a little brother. During her first year, I did a monthly rundown with photos and little notes on her favorites and sweet moments. I gave up doing those after that first year because… well, my kid was a DICK her first year of life. Like, full on asshole. It made parenting and bonding with her very, very, VERY difficult. So after the first, difficult year – I was just enjoying finally enjoying my daughter and so all those little projects about her fell by the wayside. But, I thought that I’d take a moment to write her a little letter and let her know that I love her so much. Right here. Right now.
