Happy Birthday, Mommy!!


My daughter’s August birthday will be next week.  My eldest granddaughter Bright Eyes has planned this birthday party for Mommy for the past two years, starting when she was six years old.  Dada was always involved and little sister Sunshine made out of the loop.  She cannot keep a secret, ever. Only as party neared was Sunshine allowed to help with food supplies.

This year is different.  Bright Eyes will be in Fourth Grade in September,  and this party is more sophisticated: it will be an on-line party hosted by Bright Eyes and Sunshine, and arranged through the World of WarCraft, juvenile version.. 

Simple graphics and simple choices
The girls have reservations to hold the party in the city of Storm Wind, with the blessing of the Alliance.  Actually, there will be two parties: one in the Realms of Echo Isle and the other in Silver Hand.

Invitations have been sent in inter-game mail, and requests for gifts have been made.  The gift registry can be found at the registered site.

There will be non-alcoholic beer (apparently some of the goblins interacted negatively with the gnomes last party).  There will be fireworks and fortune cards from Sage.

Children's Week is Coming: April 29 - May 6

Some of the attendees will be Pendix, Gnome Mage. WhereamI (a Dranai Warrior) and a Dancing Mechanical Monkey.

Last year Bright Eyes arranged for tortilla chips, guacamole, and salsa.  She and Sunshine made a red velvet cake.  Friends showed up for a pool party.

That is so “old school”, I have been told, by Bright Eyes. After all, she is almost 9 now.

I have not been invited.

This is a re-post from 2012.  You have no idea how many times I have been an observer of either Bright Eyes or Sunshine when they play their own games.  I didn't develop my own character (mainly because they didn't let me, which is just as well) since I wouldn't be online playing against anyone.  

Bright Eyes was born November 22, making younger than other students.  But Bright Eyes always holds her own, in fact, she rules and dominates. Brilliant child.

    1. Today's YA birthdays (tweens) are beyond simple cake, candles, and gifts.

  4. Interesting planning. If she planned the party for two years, does that mean it was a milestone birthday?

    1. That is a good question, but I think it was just something my gr-daughter wanted to do. She is extremely detail oriented.

  5. An online party? I guess that minimises clean up. Is the birthday cake real at least?
    Am I reading this wrong? I'm confused today.

    1. The cake was much less pretentious, just an ordinary cake. I did get to eat some of it.

  6. We live in a virtual world that children understand and we are left out. That's ok, as long as there is cake.

  7. A unique party to remember. :) We have a 'can't keep a secret' child in our family too. We keep that child out of the loop until the day of, or day before. ;)

  8. Dear Susan, what a blessing those two must be in your life. I suspect they are keeping you young and "with it." They both sound delightful whenever you post something about them. Peace.
