Point + Shoot : Super Crazy?

Magoo is four!!

You know what good friends do?
They see you making a decision they disagree with - and try to talk you out of it.

You know what great friends do?
They see you make a decision that they deem pretty nutty - and prepare to support/catch you if you fall.

Months ago, I made the choice to throw a 4th birthday party here at home for Magoo on Saturday
 - knowing full well that I would have a newborn baby on my hands at the same time.

I wasn't prepared to let this year (the year of the baby sister!!)
be the one where I stop going overboard on the birthday celebration front for Magoo.

I planny plan planned my heart out in the weeks leading up to Missi's birth and
had the Superhero themed bash super organised to within an inch of it's life.

I know that friends opened their invitations and shook their heads.
I also know that many of those friends laughed and resisted the urge to shake some sense into me.
Instead, they offered to prepare extra food, wrangle children, pick up supplies,
 pray to the weather man and hold babies.

So, thank you great friends.
It's safe to say I got lucky - and my crazy lady decision turned out just brilliantly.

Magoo and his little buddies had a ball.
Mummy didn't have a nervous breakdown or even a single kitten.
Missi isn't responsible for ruining anyone's life around here - just yet.

Can't ask for more than that.

Did you have a super weekend?

You're little man looks like he had the time of his life and really birthdays are the most important event in any 4 year olds life! Good on you for making it special for Magoo!

My daughter had her 4th birthday in June and she's already planning her 5th! Only 10 months to go!

I can't believe you've just had a baby! You look fabulous!

Ohhh Happy Birthday to Master Magoo! Looks like a fabulous superhero party...and what a fabulous Mummy preparing a celebration to remember. You would have totally been excused for not making such a big effort, but lucky little man that you did. Love the pics xo

My Mummy Daze said...

OH looks perfect Shar! Magoo would have loved it! I did the same for Miss E's second birthday, although J-Man was 4 months old but I was still nuts for doing it. I was definitely over-compensating for the changes going on in E's life when her baby bro came along!
So thrilled the day went off without a hitch for you xxx
