When you're young there are lots of firsts. Today Little P had his first ever birthday party. I know this is not interesting to everyone so feel free to skip this post. (but if you hang around you'll get to meet the rest of the
Addams Family Pyjamas Clan)
It was a busy day from first light. After assisting Miss Pyjamas to make a birthday cake at 11 pm last night, we were at it again by 9 am in preparation for the festivities which were due to commence after lunch. Making fairy bread, ham and cheese sandwiches and Vegemite sandwiches (yes we torture our young even on their birthdays) is hard work, as is packing two cars with enough food and supplies for a two hour party. Here is some of the spread. (We did have lots of savoury things but sweet things look so much more appealing in pictures)
Little P tried party pies for the first time. He ate 3. On top of 3 slices of fairy bread, two cakes, two hot dogs and who knows what else. Party pies won hands down.
Little P got lots of presents. It was all fun and games until Little P got violent and started poking Iggle Piggle in the eye. At that point the decree of no more fairy bread for Little P was made. Eye poking is not manners.
Mr. P got upset because I told him he couldn't have a 9th cupcake after 12 party pies and 18 sausage rolls and Little P knew what to do to make it all better.
Miss Pyjamas basked in the reflected glory. Why else would you have children if you can't take credit for their amazingness every now and then?
MOP and DOP came down from the country for their great grandson's birthday. (Yes I look like my Dad, who needs a knee reconstruction now after playing horsie with Little P for 30 minutes. He has been doing horsie with grandchildren and great grandchildren now for 23 years)
NOP (Nephew of Pyjamas ) and NOP's lovely girlfriend also attended. They are a lovely couple who have been together for ever and will probably make my sister a Bella one day (in the very distant future)
And SOP also came to lend Pyjamas moral and practical support because when you are the Bella of the birthday boy , you always seem to get stuck in the kitchen cooking. She kept me company while I stressed out about whether we had enough pies, sausage rolls, pizza and hot dogs and other important life changing matters.
SOP always looks like that , her eyes got glued shut in a terrible pasting accident when she was 3. But doesn't she have pretty eyelids?
Joking...there was no accident. She just decided to close her eyes one day and hasn't opened them yet.
This is BILOP (Brother in Law of Pyjamas ) who is a pretty cool guy.
Mr. and Mrs. Pyjamas -Proud grandparents of Little P. I've said it before and I'll say it again. That kid totally rocks. Happy Birthday Party Little P. Can't wait for your second party!
I'm off to SOP's for tea. I believe she actually means to cook...I think I may have eaten too much fairy bread to do justice to this momentous occasion.
