On Sunday, our friends threw a surprise early birthday party for J. Of course, I knew that it was going down, but J didn’t have a clue. So it was pretty great to see the look on her face when a homemade polka dot dog cake, a big ballon, presents and her best friend came through our door on a Sunday while we were all still rubbing the sleep out of our eyes.
Initially, our friends had talked about doing a ‘kidnapping’. As in straight out of bed and making a move to a local breakfast place. However, after some consideration, we decided that our three-year-old, who is not exactly the quickest moving person around in the morning (especially on a Sunday when she likes to sleep in…and so do we!) might be a little shell-shocked. So we compromised with a later start, but stuck with the PJ theme. Yep, she is wearing her long john jammies under that coat (aka her spiderman jams).
These party blowers really were the hit of the morning and we might’ve been in a wee bit of trouble if they were actual noise makers… but most of the noise was the giggling coming from those pyjama girls. Thankfully, no one seemed to notice, and our server seemed to be getting a kick out of the breakfast party on the go.
And somehow the kid in the purple PJs managed to smile and giggle her way through the morning despite a late night and an early start. But who wouldn’t be happy eating pancakes for breakfast and cake for dessert?
