Birthday preps

It is Missy Mopps' third birthday tomorrow. I think Mister has been more excited about it than she. For the past ten days he has been asking how many more sleeps until her birthday. I showed him the things we were going to give her and he can hardly wait to share her toys.

Beside the previously mentioned doll, she is getting some Littlest Pet Shop stuff - both of them love these little toys and make up all kinds of scenarios with them, so I am happy to encourage that type of play.

Traditionally, in our family, we have a birthday cake at home with our evening meal, but take the birthday person out for lunch. Missy Mopps couldn't decide if she wanted a cake with Dora the Explorer on it or a picture of a panda (her favourite animal) - she settled on Dora. We haven't chosen a venue for Missy Mopps yet - oops - but she has chosen her outfit!

As a special treat I took her to The Children's Place, and let her pick out a birthday outfit. This is what she chose. The dress is very pretty. She has good taste ;) We agreed on a pink bolero cardigan to match, because, well.... it is still a little chilly for a strappy summer dress and was sooooo darn cute! There.... I have had my girly gush for the year.

that dress is so beautiful, why is it we can't get away with wearing such pretty stuff as adults (aside from the Melbourne Cup)?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISSY MOPPS! x

I wrote a lovely comment but blogger ate it.

Please do share all your birthday wisdom, as I've got a little girl coming up on three in a few months and I don't have a clue! =P

I love the style, color and little details of the dress. I think that is perfect for my 7 year old niece.
