Last Minute Planning Anyone?

I am the worst and planning things. This Friday my daughter will be SIX! My mom has just left after being here for a month. We spent 10 days in Germany. I planned NOTHING for Jordan. I decided I would have a birthday party for her and the girls in her class. This is easy since there are ONLY 4 girls in the entire class. I figured we would do it next week - after her birthday. One of the Mom's convinced me to just do it this Friday on her birthday. So, here I am Wednesday morning handing out birthday invitations and running over to the bowling alley to reserve the lanes. They'll only get about 40 minutes or so of bowling because there is a kid's league that bowls at 5:30 - but knowing 5 & 6 year old girls - 40 minutes should be enough bowling. Then we'll have pizza and presents and cake. Voila - party is planned! I'll let you know if it all turns out as planned. My one concern is she is also inviting her friend Sophie. I just hope that the "school" friends are not real cliquey and that they remember to include Sophie. Sophie's mom thinks she'll be fine but once again - knowing 5 & 6 year old girls you never know.

The twin girls who come to my house to visit are so funny. I love them, but they do have very short attention spans! Your plan sounds perfect!

Hey, pizza, presents, cake? Really what more do you need? And for bowling, you will be lucky if they last more than a half hour!! At least you are not in the US where such big emphasis is on the "party loot" that you give to the kids to take home!! Talk about materialism at a young age!

Good luck with the party.. Can't wait to hear how it goes.
My Sweet Pea turned 6 last month and had a few girls from her class for a party.. My Princess turned 12 last month and did a bowling party and they had a blast.

I'm sure she'll have a great time with her friends throwing bowling balls, eating pizza and cake. Sounds perfect.

Hey....you've got it under control!! And even if you don't, pretend. It's always worked for me!! Somehow, these things always seem to turn out just fine! Have a great party and don't worry!

Glad to go through my feed and see you posting again! At six years old I bet 40 minutes will be plenty enough time for bowling. Sounds like a really fun time. Happy Birthday to Jordan!
