Birthday Planner: Adam's Minecrafty Sixth!

Look who's turning SIX today?
Full of fun and laughter and play!
Oh boy, our first born, Adam, is SIX.
Which means I've been a mother for s i x years. Scary!
Adam wanted a Minecrafty birthday theme this year and as his [ahem] awesome mother who's brilliantly gifted at throwing fabulous themed parties, his wish is my command! 
Adam's AWESOME, smashin' Minecraft cake!

Jess from Sweet Perfection is my only favourite cake lady who has the special ability to transform any idea or photo sample into reality.
She does magic with her hands I wish I am half like her.
If you click on the Birthday links on the right hand side of my blog, the 3D fondant cakes are done by her.
A cake is the centre piece at any party, and the last thing you want to worry about is having an epic fail cake! With Jess, I never have to worry. #notasponsoredpost

My Birthday Boy is Steve, and Ashton is Creeper. I think Ashton doesn't mind being Creeper because he doesn't know how creepy Creeper is. HEHE!

I went to source for Minecraft head gear and bought Minecraft Lego for his present. (There are 2 sets because the smaller set is for Ashton).
My kids only receive big ticket presents on three occasions every year - their birthdays and Christmas.
Yeap, my children lead very deprived lives.

Poor Adam had a sudden onset of fever the night before his school party and I stayed up all night oiling and sponging him.
I prayed that by morning his fever would break but it didn't.
He woke up at 0700am on Friday morning and told me feebly "Mummy I cannot go to school today, can we celebrate with my friends on Monday?"
In my head I was thinking Shucks. I can't be taking so many days Childcare leave at one stretch right?!
Time for a contingency plan. I oiled him, bathed him in cold shower and fed him some Panadol syrup.
Thank God the fever went off so I called his school and said he will be missing lessons today as he is not well but we will still be there for his party.
Thankfully his school agreed to let me bring an ill child to school just for the celebration otherwise a poor boy will be mighty disappointed. *Phew!*
So off to school we went, with Ashton in tow!
Look at the happy grin of my precious Adam.

Adam was overjoyed to be surrounded by his friends and showing off his Minecraft cake.
Apparently, Minecraft is a hit with all the children because they all went crazy over it. The boys could name all the characters on the cake!

Class shot with his teacher Mrs Ang. She's a nice and motherly teacher, God bless her.
This will be the last birthday celebration Adam has in kindy and I feel a bit sad already!

This year, I have an ordinary wish for you, Adam:
"Do  not  ask  your  children  to  strive  for  extraordinary  lives.
Such striving may seem admirable, but it is a way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show   them   the   joy   of   tasting  tomatoes,  apples  and   pears.
Show   them   how   to   cry   when   pets   and   people   die.
Show  them  the  infinite  pleasure  in  the  touch  of  a  hand.
And   make   the   ordinary   come   alive   for   them.
The    extraordinary    will    take    care    of    itself."
- "That Parent's Tao Te Ching" by William Martin.
May you grow up to be a healthy and happy child.
Lots of love,
Mummy and Daddy.
