So this year we had a delayed second birthday party for Squidge as Dink was due to arrive on her actual birthday so we moved everything back a month!
With everything being all up in the air with Dink's arrival we thought it would be nice to do something special just for Squidge.
So we pulled up our sleeves and had a Hartbeeps party at the local village hall.
Squidge used to love going to Hartbeeps when she was little so it was an easy choice for us!
Hartbeeps is an interactive play session from newborn to five years run across a couple of different classes (So you haven't got four year olds jumping over babies!!) and it uses music to run themed sessions with multi-sensory play.
It really brought Squidge on and Miranda doesn't even mind when your little one has a good old chew on the props which Squidge used to do ALL the time!!
Squidge loved her classes from six months and the only reason we still don't go is because their currently isn't a class very close by.
Miranda is full of energy and genuinely loves what she does which is so nice to see and the kids love her!
Squidge full immersed herself in what it really feels like to be a dinosaur....completely with rubber gloves
From my perspective it was the easiest birthday party to run as Miranda who runs the classes in Lincolnshire took on fifteen toddlers and their parents (Oh yes my dears parent participation is required!!) while I sat with Dink and DH and his dad cooked the food!
Although, I did have to keep the Parent Participation bit quiet as one friend put it...."there is alcohol right?" and "I'll remember this when it's my turn"
Squidge thoroughly enjoyed her day with only one or two diva moments towards the end but you know the saying...."it's my party...."
