I swear! I’m living with Ziggy Stardust in the house…our maybe two Ziggy Stardusts. My kids definitely follow the beats of their own drum, and they can never do anything like any other kids.
Most of the time I love this creativity and uniqueness that they both seem to embody, but at this moment, as I am planning child #2’s b-day party, I am feeling the pain!
In my 10 years of planning birthday parties for two children, there has only been one time that my kids have chosen one of those birthday cakes out of the book at the bakery. My kids are just not your typical Spiderman, Batman, Cinderella type of kids. Even when my daughter had a “Frozen’ cake like every other girl across the country, the one in the book was just not good enough for her. We ended up with this cake instead. Pretty awesome, huh? Yes, but a lot of extra planning for Mom!
My son’s interests do conform with the rest of the 8-year-old boy population, but of course, there are no Minecraft of Stampy Cat cakes in that darn book! Please!!! This is so annoying!
So, I’m off to Toys-R-Us to today to buy Mincraft toys to stick on top (If I can find them!), and I probably will have to hand-make every party favor, too. Just why can’t it be simple?
So…the song of the day is for my little Ziggy Stardusts who refuse to follow the norm. Lord help me!
