Pokemons are still here! Little milkie has requested for a Pokemon theme (again -.-”’) for her mini birthday celebration at home with the big family two weeks ago. Challenging? Definitely for the mommy as she cracked her head trying to think what else she can do. I seriously hope that she won’t request for it again the next year.
It’s weird though that little milkie insisted to just celebrate it at home instead of with her friends, and told me that she is too shy to want to be the center of attention in school. Not sure if that’s a bad thing but anyway, it was quite a last minute planning. Was so happy that I got to receive all the items that I ordered just slightly more than a week ago!
So after cracking my head, I decided to try and make a pinata, just for the fun of it. Had initially wanted to bake a cake too but there simply wasn’t enough time. Sometimes I really wonder how did some of the mommies do it all, to manage the chores, and homework, and yet still can find time to accompany the kids.
Anyway, the night before the celebration, I stayed up late to make the pinata. Apparently there seems to be 2 ways to make a pinata, using either paper mache or cardboard. I chose the latter one which was an easier choice.
It’s not that difficult if your shape isn’t those irregular ones. It’s just time consuming as there’s a lot of taping (use paper tapes) and gluing.
After 6 hours of slow work (while watching movie on the TV), I am glad it’s done! And it looks like a pokeball!
And so we started our mini celebration with openings of goodie bags…
Followed by ‘smashing’ of the pinata… (which partly got took over by the adults)
That dropped off the small pokemons and tidbits, and made the 2 older kids go all crazy…
Then that’s it. No baking of cake so we bought a new cake from Bengawan solo. The pandan cheese roll flavour now made into a round cake, topped with pokemon figurines that I bought from Qoo10.
Click! Click! Click!
And hope these kids will grow up together and be as close as now.
The moment she’s waiting for…
That’s about it. A nice little celebration with the big family. I’ve always like the idea of such gatherings but of course it also depends greatly on the relationships. We are blessed to have that so treasure it if you have.
Time flies and my little milkie is already 6 years old with 3 baby teeth dropped. Hope she will continue to be as happy as now, and grow up healthily!
Happy 6th birthday! Love you always! 😘
