A 5 year old's Rainbow Birthday Party
In a way which only the mind of a nearly 5-year old girl would have.
My daughter's confidence in her own thoughts led us a merry dance.
Until we decided on a rainbow party.
Mummy had to scrap ideas of Numberjacks, and fairies, and pirates, and princesses.
The constant elevator ride of a child's imagination.
And when we stopped, we turned to ebay, and The Works, Baker Ross, and Home Bargains.
To make rainbow goody bags.
To find the clouds, the rainbow, and the pot of gold.
To making my children's birthday cakes.
So it continued with a rainbow cake.
And a happy mum.
The rainbow cake a success.
To rainbow cupcakes for class mates.
A complete trial for mummy.
Which fortunately worked.
5 years in.
5 years of showing mummy and daddy what a wonderfully kind, caring, happy and independent person you are.
3 years of being the best sister a child could ever hope for.
You are headstrong.
You are funny.
You are caring.
You are ours.
And we are yours.
Love you always.
