I was getting a bit worried about his birthday – half the people I invited couldn’t come (or changed their minds at the last minute!) so I was worried there would be too many adults & not enough children for Twink to play with. Anyway, we ordered a bouncy castle (just because we could)
and we bought a lot of food to burn on the BBQ, and ordered a cake. Twink spent the night at his Auntie’s & arrived back at 11.30 to find balloons, & banners, & presents, & a bouncy castle! He was VERY excited! This is the first time he’s really understood the whole concept of presents. At christmas we had to encourage him to open anything, and he wanted to put things back in the paper after he had opened them! This time he needed no encouragement at all!
After we finally convinced him to get dressed, loads of people arrived, bringing with them lots of children and Twink had a great time. Then there was cake (the cake was my cake too as I have a big birthday coming up next week)
Yep, it’s a tardis cake (not the best photo…)! How cool is that?! More on my son’s Doctor Who obsession in another post…anyway, he loved it, & the icing turned everyone’s teeth blue! The amount of sugar in it also helpfully turned a slightly ratty, nap missing boy into an energetic, happy birthday boy!
I had thought the dalek bubble bath would be the favourite present (& it was certainly appreciated…it spent most of the party guarding the back door!), but it was trumped by a…SONIC SCREWDRIVER!!! I don’t think Twink has let go of it since he unwrapped it…I can’t see the batteries lasting long…
The weather was absolutely fantastic. Despite rain being forecast, we had an amazingly hot, sunny day. Twink took a moment out to chill with an ice lolly and his new screwdriver.
Shortly after everyone left, Twink asked for a milk feed and promptly fell asleep. He had missed his nap, so going to sleep for the night at 5.30pm isn’t so unusual…but not waking up until 10.40am the next day is COMPLETELY unheard of! 17 hours and 10 minutes sleep…I guess all the fun wore him out!
