Dakota turned 7! 
Yes, it may have happened over a month ago but, it still needs a post. 
First the pictures
Dakota opening presents

    Did you know that there is a three hour rule to girl's birthday parties? I didn't and now I do and I will be telling every new mom that I come across for years. I had NO idea how long four hours could be. No one was hurt, no one locked themselves away. We only had one crier. I think we may have been lucky in this regard. Everyone got their makeup done and dressed up pretty. Dakota had a great time! Honestly it went well but, I still wanted to pull out all my hair and have a melt down. 
    I mean what do you do about bratty little girls? We have one little girl that came to the party that is NEVER allowed back in my house. She was a complete brat the WHOLE time. I couldn't believe the things that came out of her mouth. She thought she should go first and when I suggested that they pick straw she stood there screaming that it wasn't fair because she might have to go last. She was the kind of kid that makes your child look like she fell from the sky with wings bearing gifts for a new world. That about sums it up.
Koda is 7. Crazy how fast it goes.


  1. I can't believe that my youngest granddaughter's party went without any hitch whatsoever (a couple of weeks ago.)
    No criers of any kind or brats! However, it was kept to a 2 hour slot. I think that is enough!
    A belated Happy Birthday to Dakota...... the same age as Millie!

    Nuts in May

  2. Wow. Unbelievable. I have no patience for brats!

    I instinctively knew about the 3 hour rule although I can't say how.
