Marissa’s 9th birthday is less than two weeks away! Ever since she turned her calendar to the month of June, she has been talking non-stop about her upcoming big day. It’s actually pretty adorable. She’s old enough to totally get the hype and the fun, but young enough that she isn’t annoying 😆 .
This birthday is kind of tricky. We will officially have a “tween” and are starting “the awkward years”. The age that says I’m too old for this, but I’m too young for that. But I think we’ve been pretty fortunate so far. Marissa seems to be in no rush to grow up and still loves playing all kinds of games with her sister. However, I find myself bracing for impact and wondering when the winds will change. With any luck, it won’t be this year!
Her birthday wishlist this year is compiled of current obsessions (Moana), long time favorites (Legos) and a few of her favorite things (books & crafts). She also requested a new watch. She has been wearing her current one for 2 years now and it looks like it 🙄 !
A new DS Game (not pictured)
She had a lot of things that she really wanted for this birthday but she was pretty understanding and realistic that she probably won’t get everything. She’s always been such a down to Earth and grateful girl. We are so lucky to have her.
Only 12 days to go friends!
Let the celebration planning begin!
