The One Where We Dealt With Our Ageing Issues!


Hey Guys,

If you've been a long time reader of Mellywood's Mansion you will know that I don't do perfect parties see here and the children are horrified! So this year, instead of stress out in horribly hot weather, we didn't even do a party, it was just family.

This was last year! Madeleine has had issues ageing.




However my baby girl just turned four and for the first time in her life, she happily blew out the candle, without being followed by half an hour of tears.

Here is the store bought cake which I tried to do that trick where you put a cookie cutter and use sprinkles to make a shape...yeah it didn't work great for me, that was supposed to be a crown.



She got a scooter which she thought was the best thing ever and a doll that she promptly threw aside.

Also it's now a month later and I have finally taken the cake picture off my camera.

Four, it's a great age. With it comes the attitude that says "whatever world, bring it on"



 Happy Birthday to my Princess Madeleine, I love you even more than I suck at planning birthday parties...and that's a lot!


Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  1. The caption you added "whatever world ..." really seems what she is thinking ! Happy {belated} Birthday, pretty girl ! {FYI - I always booked a kiddies restaurant and had them sort everything out - and sit with the mess afterwards !}

  2. How funny.. I do remember how she cried last year. Glad this year was much easier for her. My kids have not had a problem getting older before now. My oldest will be an "adult" on her next birthday, and I think she is a bit freaked out about that. I can't say that I blame her, it is much easier being a kid. :)

  15. Poor little thing. I'm so glad that candles didn't bring her to tears this time! Love your crown and I'm so glad you didn't stress yourself out. I love low key parties.
