After a well deserved nap, we trekked out to Target once more – I didn’t have enough wrapping paper for the cottage and it needed both AA and AAA batteries. God forbid not have batteries and the doorbell or phone not work.
Got her cake baked and decorated, cleaned up the house, and waited for Daddy to get home. She saw the present in the backyard (wrapped) and gushed “Oh Mommy, is that big pink present for me?” The princess didn’t want to wait…and wasn’t happy when she HAD to.
My ILs came over and we had dinner, cake and ice cream, and then presents. She LURVED the cottage. She could barely stand it when the men had to put it together and she couldn’t play with it right away. But once the minimal adult assembly was completed – she rang that doorbell for an hour straight. My little girl was very happy!
