So what has been giving me the shits this week?
Maggie was invited to her first random kid from daycare birthday party last week ... No FFS
She often comes home talking about her BFFS but had never once mentioned this little girl's name so I was quite surprised ... No FFS
When I showed her the (Frozen) invitation she said 'Oh that's my best friend Alex' ... No FFS
I had a talk with her about what went down at birthday parties and there were tears for the rest of the week ... FFS
It was a bit much for a 3 year old to take in ... FFS
But it's my Frozen birthday party not Alex's ... FFS
But they're my presents, not Alex's ... FFS
I'm blowing out the candles, not Alex ... FFS
Alex is not my best friend anymore ... FFS
It's safe to say by the time the party rolled around I was terrified ... FFS
And of course she gave Alex her birthday present and wished her a Happy Birthday and went and played like an angel .. . FFS
When it was cake time she was the only kid singing Happy Birthday at the top of her lungs and wasn't even tempted to blow out the candles ... No FFS
Her other real BFF Lulu was also there and Maggie immediately took a shine to her Dad ... No FFS
I think she thought he looked a bit like her Uncle Pete and she ran over and gave him the biggest hug ever ... FFS
Of course he was quite taken back but went along with it ... No FFS
We had the Peppa Pig concert yesterday and Maggie had a blast ... No FFS
I on the other hand had to ignore the kid next to me kicking me in the shins the entire time ... FFS
I also ignored the kid screaming behind me in my ear that she wanted to go home ... FFS
During intermission Maggie went up and danced with the other kids near the stage ... No FFS
And then she spotted someone and came running up to me and excitedly said 'Mummy, my Nanny is here!' ... FFS
Before I could say anything she was off and hugging this poor lady like there was no tomorrow ... FFS
OK so I know my Mum is ready this and probably crying now ... FFS
Don't worry Mum, we will see you next month xx
I had to go and explain to her that it wasn't her Nanny ... FFS
I apologised to the lady who was there with her grandchildren, but she thought it was lovely ... No FFS
It's fair to say that this kid of ours is a bit of an extrovert ... No FFS
And she doesn't reserve her affections just for people that look like our extended family either ... FFS
When we were last at the markets I bought her a strawberry smoothie and she happily walked and slurped away ... No FFS
I turned around a few seconds later and she was gone ... FFS
When I spotted her a few metres away, I saw her walk up to a 7ft African man who was also happily slurping down a smoothie ... No FFS
She reached up on her tippy toes and shouted 'CHEERS' and tried to bump smoothie cups ... FFS
I held my breath because for a moment I had no idea what he was going to do, but his face broke into one of the biggest smiles I had ever seen ... No FFS
She is indeed our little ray of sunshine.
Cheaper than mofo therapy.
