We tucked in one tired and very happy boy tonight. Oscar's 4th birthday party this afternoon was a big success. This was Oscar's first official kid party and Tim and I kinda got into it, especially since Oscar's robot love gene finally kicked in. So we had...
a space station constructed out of cardboard boxes and a huge roll of bubblewrap with a little photo op on the side.
control panels printed on adhesive paper to be colored and stuck on the shirts for robot costumes. of course Oscar never got his on. Phoebe wore hers like a good little girl until she started chewing through it.
the snack robots made from melamine cafeteria plates, a paper tablecloth and some markers.
decorating robot gingerbread cookies with glitter frosting and candy
and sparkly robot cupcakes
I think I know why people throw elaborate themed birthday parties for their kids. It distracts you from the realization of how fast it's all going by. Happy birthday baby.
