A month ago, Tigger said he wanted a Minecraft themed 6th birthday party. He then changed his mind to Ben 10, and then changed his mind again to superhero and then again to Minecraft. At this point I quickly locked down on it and went online to get an invitation.

Party Steps :
1. Make a guest list first: mine came to 20 kids.
2. Pick Venue: Royal Stables in Abu Dhabi is my favourite party destination in cooler weather. It is where we had my little sister’s baby shower also.
3. Date: Yes, pick the venue before the date to see if the venue is free, if it can accommodate  kids etc.
The party was going to be the day after his birthday as it just was more convenient for everybody.


The invitations turned out beautifully, and Tigger was super excited to hand them out. He gave them to his classmates, his teacher, his swimming coach, and so on. Suffice to say we had over 20 people at the party.

I will be posting more details of the party soon.

Follow the series.

I might have spoken too soon when I wrote in my first post that Little Roo might be the only full term baby I might have. Exactly 4 days after I turned 33 weeks, which is incidentally exactly the time I was in with Tigger. On the 22nd of June, Little Roo decided that he just didn’t want to wait anymore. After C section No.3, he came out screaming. Little Roo is my 4th NICU baby, and at some point in time I am going to write about my traumatic birth stories and their NICU times, where the stories are many and not all of them happy. But today it’s just his birth announcement. Tigger is ecstatic and can’t wait till the baby comes home from the NICU (which should be in just a few days). Bam-bam and Pebbles don’t comprehend yet, but at this point, as long they don’t smack Little Roo when he comes home, I think we will be good.

To my new life as a mom to 4!
