As of today, two of my three kids are officially in the double digits! My middle child, Miss M, turns 10 today. She is so excited I think she may just come out of her skin. So, what do we have planned?
To start with, she wanted her friends from gymnastics to help her celebrate. Since practice was last night, Miss M made 48 cupcakes the night before – all by herself and decorated every last one of them.
This morning I will take her a fresh apple cinnamon muffin in bed – just because I am nice (even though I wouldn’t bail her out on the lunch thing yesterday). She will take a large cookie cake in to school with her to share with her class. Hopefully everyone will like it.
Then this evening we will do family gifts and cake when Dad gets home. I hope she likes all her gifts – plenty of clothes, a cell phone, some games and a watch.
On Sunday, Miss M and her two closest friends will get together – we are starting at the mall where I will treat the three of them to a manicure (this is a first), then Miss M is getting her ears pierced (she has been asking for 5 years and Dad finally gave in), and we will finish up with dessert at the Melting Pot. I think we will have much more fun than if we hosted some gigantic sleepover or party with larger group.
I’ll try to get some good pictures on Sunday and let you know how the weekend goes.
