Birthday Box

Considering the our ineptitude as parents, I’m not sure how we managed to get Soapfi through her first two years mostly unscathed. Some of our friends probably lost money on a secret baby injury pool that must exist somewhere! We celebrated by having a party at Kids ‘N Clay. It was a win for everybody, the kids had fun painting their choice of ceramics, we didn’t have to clean up (the house before hand or the mess after!), and we have a commemorative plate with Soapfi’s hand print as well as thumb prints from all the kidlet guests.

Soapfi still takes awhile to warm up to large groups even when she knows everybody, but she was having fun by the end. She was a little perplexed by the whole concept of blowing out the candle, so daddy ended up having to assist.

Our friends were extremely generous with their gifts – beautiful spring outfits we desperately needed, fun Calliou toys that were naturally a hit, and even a play kitchen! Of course, in the end her favorite thing was the cardboard box that play kitchen came in!

  1. Too cute! What a fun idea for a party. Happy birthday, Soapfi! My brother, whose girls now are seven and nine, just shakes his head in wonder at the gifts they gave the girls in the first couple of years of their lives–“we should have just given them empty boxes, and saved the money when we could!”

  2. Aw, Happy Birthday Soapfi!
    I am ALL about the play kitchens!

  3. that picture of her studying that cupcake is absolutely adorable!!!
