are you hungry for some birthday fun?

my little party

Little Matthew sure was hungry for some birthday fun! Especially considering we planned every detail of his first birthday celebration around his favourite bedtime story, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The much-loved classic by Eric Carle won over my boys with its vivid and colourful collage of illustrations and hopeful story. My husband and I were sold on its simple text and that how it captured so many educational themes – counting, days of the week, different food and a butterfly’s life stages. If you haven’t had the joy of reading it yet, pop it on your book list. I promise you will love it!

Every recycled glass milk bottle had a green or orange paper straw. The centrepiece was made of a red dinosaur skelton in the centre, and an assortment of dinosaurs lined the table setting.

Oh the joys of toddler-hood. What to do with your ever curious, energetic little person? Where once upon a time they were a sweet baby that was easily entertained with a cuddle and a soft lullaby, to chilling out with toys on a play mat, they are now ready to break free of the playpen …
