Emerson's Birthday It was my little baby's fourth birthday yesterday...and mummy took a long overdue day off and spent the day doing whatever my 4 year old wanted to do (with some passive guidance of course) Pancakes with cream & bacon! Then off to Emporium for Milkshakes at Bella Epoque and over the road to his favorite toy shop....He was given his choice of presents and I was smiling with his very humble selection. We all spend so much money on our children, but I found out yesterday that given the choice a 4 year old wants in no particular order 1. A pony on a stick to run around with (very old school) 2. A witches hat 3. A container and stick of bubble blowing stuff and 3 small plastic African animals....wilder beast, cheetah and baby lion. That was it!!! No Ben 10 No transformers, no huge plastic monstrosity...all open play toys that he will need to use his imagination for....I might let them choose more often instead of letting Marketing Executives sway me into buying some block buster movie merchandising. Now onto a small little party for 4 friends and a cute theme. Found these on Martha Stewart aren't they lovely. Wish I had the time to whip this up and the pink is obviously not appropriate (just having girl envy again) but I do like the golf themed one. So pretty for that little girl that doesn't particularly like fairies.
