Jada turned the BIG 4 the other day! I’m calling it the BIG 4 because she’s been looking forward to this particular day for such a long time and with so much anticipation, that when the day finally arrived, her dad and I knew that we had to make this one count; and that is exactly what we did.
So with the boys in school and dad at work, mom and Jada set off on a early Monday morning birthday adventure to Kids Station. When we arrived at the kiddie salon (who also does glam parties) to get Jada all dolled/glammed-up (of which she had no idea of cause!) She was so surprised that she didn’t speak for a good 30 minutes or more! When I asked her about this later, about why she didn’t talk much, her response was so the ladies could get their work done properly – I know she’s not usually shy, so this must be true. How grown up is that!? 🙂
At least they have this cute little TV’s at each dresser that keeps the kids entertained while they are getting pampered, so this could very well also be the reason for Jada being so distracted or maybe just relaxed.
Alas, her silence paid off, because at the end of the make-over, I could hardly recognize my own daughter! Hair, face and nails to boot! Although I loved seeing all the excitement on her beautifully made up face and experience her joy at being transformed into a real-life princess (every little girl’s dream!), I’m quite relieved that birthdays only comes around once every year and that I have my little girl back again…make-up-less.
Here’s a few pictures of the Princess on her 4th Birthday:
Happy Birthday Jada and many happy returns!
