Mommy Moments - Birthday Photo

I've always wanted a picnic party for my daughter. So last December 2010, we celebrated her 4th birthday in Camp John Hay. I prepared everything ... cupcakes, pink balloons, and a pink shirt dress that matches my princess' personality. She was so excited!

What I didn't prepare for was that swing hitting my princess and giving her bruises on her nose.

She was too sad to even blow her candles and smile for the camera.....

She didn't get to play with her guests ... she was just beside gramma all the time ....

She later played with her friends but she wasn't as energetic ....

But when we went home and she had time to really check her gifts ... she forgot all about the accident and she was back to normal as if nothing happened. She had crowns, sandals, dresses, crayons and books and she was so happy ....

The bruises are gone but I still feel bad when I remember this day. But I'm still thankful that I have a smart, healthy and lovely 4 year old ... that's the only thing that matters.

This is my first post for:
