Someone Turned 3 Today

Miss Peanut Butter's Third Birthday was today, sigh, where does the time go? I know you are all curious about the Curious George cake. I managed to get the thing home unscathed by the girl. I put it up in the cupboard so she wouldn't try to get at it. Silly Mama. I was about to get in the shower as J went down stairs and said, "So much for a cake." My heart sank, I was out 30 bucks for the cake and would have to get a new one. Luckily my daughter has super strength. After attempting to get up on the counter with a rubbermaid shoe container that crushed, she got a small garbage can from the living room, dumped the trash on the floor and brought it into the kitchen and flipped it over, climbed up onto the counter, opened the cupboard, pulled the half sheet of cake out, placed in on the counter and began to stick her fingers in it. After all that it was amazingly good shape. How the heck she was able to get it out of the cupboard, I will never know.

We had her party at the park yesterday, it was a beautiful day. I think she had a pretty darn good time. The only real mar on the day was a group set up in the other pavilion and blasted Mexican polkas from the parking lot. It got pretty old fast.


She also got to hang out with Nana, which I know she loved. She kept yelling and waving, "come 'ear Nana!"

The pirate ship was a big hit. She has listened to "How I Became a Pirate" last night and tonight. She actually got into the pictures tonight. Who would've thought Miss Princess would like pirates. One of our friends was surprised when she opened the book. He said, "Pirates?" I said she has a thing for pirates wait until you see the ship and he laughed.



We went for her 3 year check up today and she is doing well. We had to work today so she got to have a little party at daycare. I guess she got mobbed when she came in with her balloon. How she managed to make it to day care with out losing the balloon, I don't know. All in all I think she had a good birthday.

My Peanut Butter ever the princess at 3. The terrible twos are over, right?

Happy Birthday, Miss M.! I LOVE the picture of her with Nana in the slide, and I am impressed that she didn't go full bore into the cake. I am so glad that you all had such a wonderful day!

And I will assume that is the sugar talking when you ask if the terrible 2s are over!

What a lucky girl! Happy Birthday Miss Maggie! What a great cake by the way:) I agree with Nicole you must have been on some serious sugar when you aked about the terrible twos being over!! The 2's were easy for me the 3's were HELL!! Little attitudes and pushing every button possible to drive me crazy! But ya gotta love them.
