2 years ago yesterday i gave birth to my baby. he has grown into a strong, affectionate, happy, adventurous little man. yep the realisation has hit me that he is now a little man. i know this because he has started playing by himself in little worlds he has created and he has let me read him a really long book from start to finish twice. really big things in the world of a mumma and a little man.
we created a bubbles and balls party for his birthday. i made a conscious effort to scale back from my usual grand plans and we invited 6 of his friends (and ours) to play for the afternoon.
our little activity was painting our own pots and planting marigolds. the kids loved getting their hands dirty and everyone got to take a flower home.
i created lollipops which are just a balloon on a piece of poly pipe covered with clear cellophane and tied with a ribbon. i loved them!
and no party would be complete without bunting - especially rainbow bunting!
yep simple is better.
