childhood is a journey not a race
Today* my youngest is having a birthday party. She turns 16 next Tuesday and she is a gorgeous girl. So she wanted to have a birthday party today with her friends. When she was 6, we held an *Alice in Wonderland ~ tea party* for her and she wanted to repeat it 10 years later....she has done alot of organizing.... for the tea party, she has everyone wearing either a hat or coming dressed as a character out of the book. She, of course is Alice. We have lots of different flavoured teas...lots of yummy cakes & biscuits (cookies) * sandwiches and some small quiche.
They are playing flamingo croquet * and will the watch the original Disney Alice cartoon.
I admire these young people who are quite happy to celebrate in this way...... some aren't coming as its not cool. How sad * which made me remember the title of my post ~ CHILDHOOD IS A JOURNEY, NOT A RACE
