Lady P turns two today! And what a perfect, fun, sweet, smart, silly two year old she is.
To honour this landmark birthday I have baked a cake and decorated it with sprinkles in the shape of a number two.
What's that? When's the party? The cake and the happy hour are the party, I'm afraid, and that's your lot.
I do feel a pang of parental guilt if I think about it for too long. I know lots of parents throw parties for their one and two year olds. But we figured we'd put it off for another year. When she's three, she may demand a particular kind of cake, and appreciate a few games, or at least a couple of other toddlers to run around with. Right now, if we tell her a birthday cake at 10am constitutes a party, she knows no better.
Don't judge us. From next year onwards. it's petting zoos, magicians and inflatables all the way. Or at least, we might invite a couple of people to join us for happy hour.
