I know, he’s not really a baby anymore, even though the first thing he said this morning was ‘Am I still your baby Mammy, even though I’m five?’ But he still feels like my baby and I can’t believe he’s five already.
We had a fantastic birthday party for him tonight and he’s now in bed absolutely worn out. All of his friends came and everything went smoothly, the most traumatic moment was when someone got chips instead of munch crunch veg – oh the tears ;-).
He came home with more Ben 10 toys than anyone could ever want, along with some other rather interesting toys that I’m sure I’ll be banning shortly!
In the end we had 17 guests (we started with 18 but one boy’s mum took him home for kicking another boy!). So altogether it cost us a very un-frugal £96.00!
For the last week or so I’ve been trying to make a bit of extra money to put towards the cost of the party and I managed to make £40 on Ebay along with £10 from a mystery shopping job. I’m quite pleased with that but to be honest the smile on his face throughout the whole of his party was worth every penny that we paid.
Happy Birthday Master Frugal – I love you lots and lots and jelly tots.
