She's not open to compromise.
And she won't be manipulated.
She wants a "Holy Baby Birthday" with a "Holy Baby Cake." She started thinking about it back when it was my birthday, and has been set on the idea ever since.
She also doesn't respond to Sadie any longer. Anyone who calls her Sadie is met with a tearful:
"I want be Holy Baby!"
She does accept being called "Sister Scholastica" however.
She even went with Nani and picked out "Tangled" plates and napkins (she will have a Tangled celebration at Nani's). I was hopeful. But when we got to the car and I asked her what her birthday was going to be the answer hadn't changed: "Holy Baby Birthday" (which actually sounds like "Ho Bae Birthday!" because she hasn't quite gotten her l's down 100%).
I tried when she was bouncing off the walls at Nani's house watching Winnie the Pooh. "Would you like a Winnie the Pooh party?" (as visions of all the easy birthday packets at Walmart danced through my head... this was before Nani had gotten her Tangled plates...). Without missing a beat she said "Holy Baby Birthday" and continued frolicking.
So I've been wondering... What exactly is involved in a Holy Baby Birthday Party? I have ordered two "party favors" (one for Sadie and one for Mae) from Saintly Silver on Etsy.
Here's Sadie's Softy:
And here's Mae Bae's Softy:
And I do plan on making a few things (some nun dolls like the dolls on my shop) and a "Holy Baby outfit" for Sadie.
Any other ideas for throwing a Nun Themed third birthday party? I have a little over a month to get ready for it and while I wouldn't usually be putting this much effort into a birthday party (particularly since it's going to be almost all family) a Holy Baby Birthday does seem to require a little extra work! Ideas?
