[3Y] 生日派對

Emily@UK - El and her Peppa Pig cake!

愛兒的 Peppa Pig 生日蛋糕,奶奶送的。

 

愛兒滿三歲囉!

往年因為她年紀尚幼,我們都只有與家人們聚聚,頂多一兩個好友也來同樂,就算慶祝了。今年頭一回我們為她舉辦一個生日派對,請她的好朋友們都一起來玩。
初步名單一列光是小孩就有 24 位,趕緊就此打住,立刻取消邀請她幼稚園裡經常一起玩的那些小朋友們的念頭。
邀請函發出給 24 位小朋友,全數都回覆說要來。原本想總會有一些人因事不能來,只訂購了20份 party bags 的小玩具,這下又得趕緊再找東西拼湊出另外 4 袋來。
(註: party bags 是英國父母們在小孩的派對結束,賓客們離開時送給他們的一袋小禮物。)


今年我們包下了一個小型 soft play area,像台灣連鎖的愛樂園遊戲區,但更大更高,絕對可以把小孩累翻,當晚會很好睡,哈!
每個小孩都玩得非常開心,尤其愛兒第一個抵達一到就直接衝去玩了,她也是最後一個離開的,叫都叫不下來。
跟她說要走了,她還跟我發脾氣,不肯接受派對結束的事實,不願意跟賓客們說再見,不肯下來穿鞋子,最後只得讓姑丈直接抱上車,不然她都不回家了。
她這樣很讓人頭疼,可就如其他媽媽們說的,今天是她的日子,偶爾也得准許她為之,誰叫她和朋友們玩得這麼開心呢,不肯回家的小孩也不只她一位阿,唉。

三層樓高的 soft play area,絕對夠操!哇哈哈!
(…很陰險的媽…)

 

小孩的 party 其實都不久,差不多兩個小時就夠了。而且他們也吃得不多,滿腦子只想趕快去玩,根本無心坐下來吃東西。
我是寧可不夠吃也不要浪費的人,儘管我很保守地估算食物的量,但因為婆婆當天很熱心地為我們做了 cheese scones 和 bite size chocolate corn flakes,一位友人也很貼心地為我們炸了一大盤春捲,我們當天有滿滿一桌的食物。
大人們是這樣的,帶著小孩去參加 party,忙著照顧小孩倒也沒什麼機會可以坐下來飽食一頓,而且可能還要負責清光自己小孩吃剩或不吃的,所以算是可吃可不吃,反正不過兩個小時罷了,餓不死人的。
但是,如果有食物隨手可得,抓了就能塞嘴裡的,那肯定也是會自己找機會吃點的。
因此我們準備的食材多是這樣的,例如大多水果都是洗好切好,葡萄番茄都已經離了梗,連橘子都先幫你把皮給剝了並掰好一瓣一辦的,拿了就能直接塞嘴裡。
不讓父母親沾手,不用刀叉碗盤,他們甚至可以不必坐下來,就算小孩喊著尿急,他們也能在抓起小孩的手往廁所跑之前先塞兩辦橘子!
所以即使有超量的食物,非常意外的,並沒有剩下太多,尤其在 soft play area,小孩都可以自己去玩,不少父母親乾脆坐下來邊吃邊聊天。
友人愛心特製的那盤抵達時還溫熱著,素食者可食用的炸春捲,沒多久就被掃個精光。我婆婆自製的 cheese scones 大家都讚不絕口,也見了盤底。
那些沒有事先剝好切好的食物,例如香蕉,果然就是沒有人碰阿!反正本來就是個備案,如果東西不夠吃再來切香蕉,但因為多著是東西可以吃,再帶回家去也不麻煩囉。

今年生日得到的禮物有:兒童廚房一組,旅行專用 Kitty 包,清潔工用具一組 (這是媽媽請朋友送的,有兒童 size 的掃把拖把等,哈,我等她幫我掃地阿!),Peppa Pig 的珠寶箱及火箭,手飾項鍊一組,勞作用具兩組,自製手環一組,背心睡衣 T-shirt 等衣物數件,故事書及 activity books 數本,歌星組 (鍵盤,吉他和麥克風,這些不能調音量,她很愛,大人很恨哪!),很會表演的玩具倉鼠一隻和她的衣服一組,人生中的第一個縫紉組,教學時鐘,可以讓她幫八匹馬和獨角獸梳妝打扮的髮飾組。。。 忍不住要再說一遍:「這年頭的小孩真的是很幸福阿!」

愛兒生日送出的 party bags:
小玩具兩個 (黏瘩瘩的怪物和一個旋轉飛碟),色筆,
洗澡可用的迷你毛巾布玩偶,魔術方巾,巧克力零食,
和愛兒的生日蛋糕一塊是當天放進去。

愛兒很喜歡玩那隻綠色超級黏手的 splatter,用力甩上玻璃門或窗戶,再看著它翻滾下來。

 

邁過三歲這個里程碑,是該記錄一下。
愛兒很喜歡數學,喜歡數數,畫畫和寫字。她已經認識所有的英文字母,大小寫及其發音,例如看到「S」會說:「S is for Summer, for Steve, for Sugar」。
會寫她自己的英文名字,數字和部分英文字母,我並不想這麼早就教她學寫字,但她會主動要求,不教還不行的那種堅持,挫折地大喊著:「我不會,你教我啦!」 所以我目前是持被動的態度,她有說我才教。
中英文都能數數,這一點獎勵表有不小的功勞阿,每天都數星星來的,哈!
體能發展也很不錯,很愛彈跳床(Trampoline),能自己張開雙臂靠平衡感走過體操平衡木(beam),兩歲九個月起終於可以自己獨立且順利地騎腳踏車前進倒退。
非常愛玩 playdoh (培樂多黏土),問她為什麼,她說因為她不喜歡把手弄髒,玩 playdoh (培樂多黏土)不會把她的手弄髒… 說的也有理。

因為我們經常見面的這一群媽媽們都是當初懷孕期間與生產後參加準媽媽或嬰兒俱樂部認識的,所以我們的小孩都是差不多這幾個月裡出生的,因此這一陣子以來的 party 不斷阿!
打從十一月起,我們已經參加了七場派對,而直到三月初,我們還有六場生日派對要參加!我們都笑說:「we will be fed up with seeing each other soon!」

    恭喜恭喜 愛兒三歲了~好快啊 不知不覺 我也跟了Emily的blog三年多了
    自從有了Olivia之後 我就更常上來看看Emily之前的文章 參考妳帶愛兒的一些經驗 有好多想要跟Emily請教
    看愛兒13週大的那篇 她會自己捧著瓶子 是有訓練嗎?? 我家的這隻 上星期五滿13週 很愛笑 腳也很會踢來踢去的 但是小小的手 只會在急的時候 把我拿奶瓶的手 “按“著 或是會往前推進自己的嘴裡 想要讓她抓東西 她卻只有在抓我的手指的時候 握的最緊
    上週量體重 5.53公斤 但是 一天頂多喝750ml的牛奶(餵六次) 想要增加 但是 她有時又喝的慢 喝多了 又會吐一些 我也只好順其自然了
    現在在家自己帶小孩 四五月 就要回去上班了 真會捨不得呢 不想錯過她成長的過程 但是 不上班 只靠一個人的收入 真的很難 哎…

    • Emily@UK says:

      那是小瓶子而且剛好角度對了她才拿得住啦, 不必緊張, 不久的將來就會了. 這時候太小, 都是要順其自然的, 不要心急喔!

    愛兒生日快樂!

    覺得愛兒在英國過的比較快樂充實。一想到接下來還有六場,愛兒應該快樂的不得了吧,但是父母累了點就是了,不過看到孩子甜美的笑容,一切都值得。

    童年只有一次,愛兒很幸運,可以在英國渡過快樂的童年。

    • Emily@UK says:
