Five Things: Pour Some Sugar On Me

So I’ve reached that age where I am once again being invited to kid’s parties – when did we all grow up and start having babies?? Babies that turn into walking, talking little people? Would you all just stop it, because it makes me feel old!!

My favourite thing about kid’s parties is the SUGAR. I’ve noticed a worrying trend where the oldies-but-goodies are being replaced with fresh fruit and organic wholewheat and tofu. There’s a time and place for healthy wholesome food and kid’s parties are not it. What’s the point of attending a kid’s party if not to eat as much simple carbohydrates as possible before falling into a cavity-toothed sugar-coma?

Back in the good ol’ days there were no party-planners, cakes were not towering fondant-covered monoliths, and party-packs didn’t contain cellphones or whatever it is they’re handing out nowadays…

I can’t WAIT until Saturday’s 3rd birthday party :-).

  1. Wasn’t the other name for those ice lollies, bunny lick things ‘fruity flo’s’? Brings back memories 😛

    • I just remember Bunny Licks. If you Google Bunny Licks there are cute pictures of actual bunnies… I guess Googles too young to know about the ice-lollies. OMW. We’re older than Google!
