Okay... Maeve's 6th birthday back in May. Its so hard to believe she is 6 already. She anticipated her birthday party for MONTHS. And, how much stress is it pulling off a birthday party and inviting friends without feeling like you've left anyone out of the wide circles of friends she now has with school, after-school program, and our long-time friends. Next year I'm going to try and convince Maeve that only 1-2 friends is a great idea. Since she's already talking about her next birthday, I'm hoping to lay these foundations early. Ha.
Maeve had a magical forest party, which involved dressing up and face paint. The kids were transported to an imaginary make-believe land, which resulted in my friend, Amy, and I giving each other confused looks. I think they may have joined a cult. I'm not totally sure though. Apparently you need to be 6 to understand... but they had fun, so there you have it. Ha.
One thing is for sure -- Maeve is lucky to have so many nice friends. Here's to another great year... let's hope this one doesn't fly by as quickly as 5 did.
