Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland – too much for a 5-year old??

Has anyone gone to see Alice in Wonderland since its release? Anyone with a 4 or 5 or 6 year old?

Well, this past Saturday, I went to the 4:30 show at Al Fanar to see it and it was a disater ūüė¶

My son was so spooked out by the whole thing, we barely sat for about 40 min and when I looked at him, I really thought he would start crying in the absolutely packed theater!!

I think he found the whole darkness of the movie really scary along with the Red Queen’s big head. Even Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, was too much for him……….. I probably will have to wait till he is a little older to see it again.

What did you all think of the movie?….fill me in

You’re Really A Mom When…

  • You count the number of sprinkles on each kid’s cupcake to make sure they are equal.
  • You want to take out a contract on the kid who broke your child’s favorite toy and made him/her cry.
  • You have time to shave only one leg at a time.
  • You hide in the bathroom to be alone.
  • Your child throws up and you catch it.
  • Someone else’s kid throws up at a party and you keep eating.
  • You consider finger paint to be a controlled substance.
  • You mastered the art of placing food on a plate without anything touching.
  • Your child insists that you read “Once upon a Potty” out loud in the lobby of the doctor’s office and you do it.
  • You hire a baby sitter because you haven’t been out with your husband in ages, then you spend half the night talking about and checking on the kids.
  • You hope ketchup is a vegetable because it’s the only one your child eats.
  • You find yourself cutting your husband’s sandwiches into unusual shapes.
  • You fast-forward through the scene when the hunter shoots Bambi’s mother.
  • You obsess when your child clings to you upon parting during his first month at school, then you obsess when he skips in without looking back.
  • You can’t bear to give away baby clothes–it’s so final.
  • You hear your mother’s voice coming out of your mouth when you say, “Not in your good clothes.”
  • You stop criticizing the way your mother raised you.
  • You read that the average-five-year old asks 437 questions a day and feel proud that your kid is “above average.”

Enjoy being a mom! ūüôā

Happy Birthday Overdose!!!

We just got through 3 B’day celebrations for my son……an overdose for sure……but my son absolutely enjoyed!!!

This year the cartoon character of the moment was Ben 10……so that’s 3 different cakes with Ben 10 on them. On 11th he had a small party at school, then in the evening, he had one at a another gathering and one later at home with immediate family.

Today was with the whole jing-bang lot Рfamily, friends and colleagues at Pizza Hut, Salmiya. Actually the package was quite reasonable.

We opted for the KWD 70 package which basically covers everything, as follows:

  • 2 hour celebration
  • nice big cake, enough for about 30 people
  • 15 kids with kid’s meal
  • 4-5 games, with prizes
  • goody bag toy at the end for each kid
  • 4 large pizzas for 10 adults
  • Face painting¬†
  • Video¬†coverage for 2 hours on an SD card, which they will give it to you at the end of the party
  • pretty decent decoration on the premises, with balloons,¬† Happy Birthday board.

As we had more people, we just ordered more family meals and everything was sooooooooooo great. We just had to show up and all was taken care of….now that’s what I call enjoyment!!

Well, 5th Birthday…taken care off…Thank God we have 1 whole year to rest!! Gosh I am so tired!!
