A party fit for a Superhero

img_4924Four years ago, we were blessed with out little prince. Little did we know, that little prince would turn into a crime fighter mega superhero. This little guy loves all things Spider-Man, and power rangers. He likes all superheros really, but those two are among his favorites. The 4yo can be found shooting spider webs at you on most days and loves to show off his power ranger moves! It only  made sense to throw this little guy a kick ass super hero party.

We started off, by having all the kids ( plus some adults aka big kids) pick their favorite super hero cape and mask. How fun to all be dressed up in our crime fighting gear. Next, we had potato sack races, which only appealed to the really little kids. The birthday boy decided he was not participating in that activity. Something about being stuck in a bag and bouncing just did not appeal to him.

The hubby and 7yo played the villains’ however the birthday boy did not like his daddy being tied up! He cried, like alot ya’ll. Thankfully the villain broke loose and the tears dried up just in time to break the pinata and enjoy the cake.

I typically make the kid’s birthday cakes, but adding soccer to our schedules has completely taken our lives from hectic to pure chaos. We had to buy a cake from the local grocery store, and while it was delicious, I wish i had the time to make the birthday cakes. oh well, He didn’t seem to mind his store-bought cake one bit and isn’t that what really matters anyway?

Overall it was a great party. We hopped, we laughed, and  we caught a few bad guys. The good guys  and lived to tell the tale. Happy Birthday Buddy! I hope you had a great day 🙂

I am a wife of ten years, mom of three, Nurse and student! My household is quite chaotic and busy. With a six year old going on sixteen. we shall call her "Sassy", a four year old, who is stubborn as a mule, she shall be called " mini me", and a one year old, we will call "Buddy". Our girls do Ballet, and our son, well he is all boy! Very curious and always getting in to something. When we found out we were having a boy i laughed and said " god must have known we needed a little less diva in our life," Ha, little boys are quite the handful! I love my kids with all of my heart, and i love my job too! As a nurse leader i get to see many sides to healthcare and help encourage and guide new nurses. I love taking care of patients and being able to have grown up talk and then come home to my babies. The house is usually chaotic with lots of tantrums, and messes, but i wouldn't change it for a bit. On the rare occasion that i am able to have some spare time to myself, i like to read, bake and decorate cakes, and take pictures of my kiddos. Time to myself is rare so i decided to start this blog to have a creative outlet and connect with other working moms, who might be going through the same situations as myself. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stories as a mom, student, wife and Nurse! These stories will range from Diapers and tutus to meetings and boardrooms! and everything that falls in between. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site.
