This year my niece is having a Dora themed birthday party. We thought it was a little crush last year, so we bought the DVD’s, backpack etc..little did we know that it would turn into a full fledged love affair!
A few funny things going on at the moment:
1. My niece’s mum’s best friend’s name is: Diego. (I’m not even kidding!)
2. While Mia watches the first 10-15min of the Dora DVD when she’s at our place, Greg watches the second half by himself and..
3. Every fox-like animal is called Swiper.
So, as you know last year I made a pinata for her birthday! While I’m no Jordan Ferney, I sure did have a crack at it!
Between then and now Mia has grown into quite the young lady. 3 going on 46 we say…
Everything is a “need”, including the pinata she requested for her birthday. (She saw a photo on my mum’s phone from her 2nd birthday and proceeded to point at the pinata and say: I need, I need, I need!)
I found a few cute pinata’s to make in lieu of Dora, as I don’t understand how bashing in a make-believe characters body is acceptable?!
…but I have a feeling that “Backpack” may end up getting slain by a bat…
