We’ve recovered from the sugar highs, the thank-you cards have been sent, and your new toys are already well played with. Your party at Sci-Bono was a hit. I think all a kid ever needs at his party are Flings, Fizzers, friends and an awesome cake, and we had all of that, plus some (like the food by Danielle from Moemas. The custard slices and biscuits derailed my diet in a serious way, and I’ll be facing the dietitian’s scale later this week).
The venue was amazing and kind of took care of the party – there was a tour around Sci-Bono and then a fun science demonstration. It’s also the kind of venue that parents enjoy as much as the adults too.
But it was the cake that took centre stage, and I’m pretty sure that the cake could have been the party itself. It came with sponge, sweets and chocolates, and Danielle built it around four diggers/excavators and a bridge. You played, you were mesmerised and you played some more.
And there were tears when others tried to play with your diggers. And truth is, I still have no idea how to deal with toddlers fighting over property. Does one encourage sharing? Are you entitled to your own toys, especially when it’s your birthday? But we let you have your
cake diggers and eat play with them.
It was a wonderful celebration, and I felt proud and privileged each minute. Looking forward to many more, together…
