My baby turned 7 last week. I know 7 isn't such a big number but for me, it seems like she is losing that "little girl" stage and is slowly creeping into the tween stage. Gulp! Since summer break started, she discovered ICarly on Disney. Now it's not a bad show per say. The kids don't swear, wear unappropriate clothing or talk about having serious relationships with a boyfriend. I guess I think it's mostly good for 10 year olds and not 7 although most of her friends watch older shows and talk a bit older than their age. Why are kids being pushed into growing so quickly is beyong me?!
On her birthday, I made a Barbie cake and we had dinner with my father-in-law and his lady friend. Samantha loved her gifts and forgot about the cake. The cake that I made within a few hours AFTER coming back from work. soupir. Kids!
On Sunday she had her girls only party. It was a glamorous type of party with hot pink & black pompoms, boas and jewlery making. I asked her to get dressed and she comes down wearing MY dress. Ok, I am already sad she is getting so old and now she's almost fitting into my dress? Don't ask just how close she is in wearing my high heels. Wahhhh!The party started really quiet (weird, I know!) but in the end, it lasted almost 6 hours! lol She's now a second grader who thinks she's an adult. Yeah. Good times!
Here are some photos from the party.
The cake that I ordered. It was supposed to be hot pink. I gave the baker a piece of ribbon with the exact color. Yeah...not even close! lol
Those candles were tricky! Hard to blow them away!
Love the expression of her friend to the right.

I was tired in the end and couldn't wait to take a hot, long relaxing bath. I love hosting parties but it takes a lot of time and effort in hosting them. Now I have to think about my son's birthday party in the Fall. Hey, I'm a planner! lol
