Another year…another birthday

11 march has come and gone. And so i have capped off another year full of fun, blessings, good times, homework, school trips, tantrums, laughs, and above all loads of fun with my now 6 year old.
Yea, my son turned six on 11 march. This year, we have toned down the celebrations, only because it was getting just a little too exhausting planning a kid’s bday. Don’t know about everyone else, but I just find the whole thing of making sure that ALL the kids have fun just a little too much!
This year we had a party at home with about 25 kids. The 5 older kids were the special helpers. They were incharge of the games stalls. Did I not mention that the theme was ‘carnival time’? There were 3 game stalls and the afternoon was finished off with a magic show and a visiting clown who twisted balloons for all the kids.
I managed to find a local magician- his name is Googampoo. He has reasonable pricing.
My son and the other kids really enjoyed!!!
So that’s that!
Another year, another party. 🙂
Until next year, that’s all about bdays!!

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 – family, 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!!

Another Birthday

We are barely into the new year and my son can’t seem to wait for his birthday to come!

He keeps asking, ” after Christmas its my Happy Birthday!”  Very often he comes to me and says, ” Mummy, tomorrow is my Happy Birthday?” Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Then I remember my resolution and calmly proceed to seriously answer his question.

Last year as he turned 4, I told him that we will cut 4 different Superman Birthday cakes, which we ended up doing! I hope this year he won’t remember that……..imagine planning to cut 5 cakes in 5 different places!

Now I have to start planning for a 5 year old’s birthday party…………hmmmmmmmm…….how can I keep a bunch of 5-6 year olds occupied for 2-3 hours so I can chill out a bit???

Any ideas??? 🙂
