My daughter turned 3 this week so I made it a point to document most of the day. Three is such a fun age and she loved every bit of the day that I wanted to have it recorded. As we were having our Happy Meals for lunch she told me it was the best birthday ever so that is where you get the blog title. .
First we started the morning with a game of Hungry Hungry Hippos and Cooties. Then I asked her what she wanted for lunch, I suggested the park and she replied with Happy Meals at the McDonald's with toys. Like any 3-year-old, she insisted on dressing herself and right now we love stripes. Note the striped shirt and pants. In her world, they go together.
At lunch she told me she wanted to go feed the birds so that was our next stop. It started out great until we were overwhelmed by the ducks & geese there. I kept flashing to scenes from the movie The Birds. Our visit to the duck pond ended quickly with the Birthday Girl getting bit on the finger by an overzealous goose wanting her bread. She screamed forever and kept asking me if geese had teeth. This became the topic of conversations for most of the rest of the day usually starting with "Mama why did that mean goose bite me?" We went to the toys at the park and then walked along the trails. Luckily there were a couple of nicer geese by the toys so she fed them and hopefully won't be terrified of birds the rest of her life.
After the park was of course naptime where I put together her cake. One of my facebook friends posted a similar Caterpillar Cake off pinterest a few weeks ago and that is what she asked for the entire time leading up to her birthday. The surprise and sheer joy on her face when we showed it to her was so worth it. It was super easy to make especially if you have a Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator. (I could do a whole post on how amazing this thing is.)
We ended the night with dinner at Red Robinhood (that is what my daughter calls it), a trip to Toys-R-US, cake, and a couple board games before bedtime! Of course like any kid her age, on her birthday the "why's" started and today I got my first "whatever mom." Here we go....
