Who doesn’t love unicorns! They’re Amelie’s favourite ‘Animal’ (which lead to a very disappointed trip to London Zoo a while back). So when she turned 4 this week, we threw her a big unicorn themed bash in our garden. She told me the night before that she’d changed her mind and now wanted an owl theme. So… yep. Great. I invited lots of her little friends and thankfully the sun shined bright the whole day, so it was all good. It would have been a disaster if we’d all been crammed in the house!
I was a little anxious beforehand – I am the flappiest person on the planet and I don’t really like being in charge of things. I worry about everything, all the time. But the kids were happy, there were no tears and Amelie had a really lovely day. Phew.
We played pin the horn on the unicorn (cue sniggers from parents), whacked the hell out of a unicorn pinata and decorated unicorn biscuits. At least, they would have been unicorn biscuits if I hadn’t lost the unicorn cookie cutter. So they did alphabet biscuits instead.
So now I have a four year old who seems so grown up all of a sudden. I hope she never stops thinking unicorns are real.
