In 10 days, the dotter will be (gasp!) five years old.
Where did the time go?!
(Oh-so-cliché, but oh-so-true.)
Anyway. We are planning a party. Sigh. Yes, we have reached the age/point wherein birthday parties are Da Bomb.
I'm seeking horse-themed party invites. Spirit themed party invites would be best, but, alas, as in all things marketing, Spirit is a thing of the past. I can find "Cars"-themed invites. "Bratz". "Backyardigans".
So far, the invitees are all the "K"-sounding kids plus one or two outliers. C, her One And Only True Love. K, her BFF. K, another almost BFF. A and B, the twins, who I adore--not only are they disgustingly cute little blonde-haired-blue-eyed mopheads, but they are always sunny and cheery. Always. Think Stepford Twins. And maybe M and A. All girls, except for the hapless C.
On the gift agenda is purchasing a car booster seat, to replace our long-suffering Britax Roundabout.
And then there's the item to which "shhhhhh" applies.
Down the road to the highway, you turn right onto Old Hills Highway, rather than follow the paved road left. Cross over the very beginnings of Way Cool Creek Canyon (up here, it's Wellhouse Wash). Drive up a hill. Take a left onto a well-hidden dirt driveway. Drive the winding driveway about three-quarters of the way towards the highway. There's a barn.
It's a horse boarding facility.
They have horseback riding lessons.
The lesson provider may--may--take OmegaDotter. Depending on how mature she is, and how well she behaves.
So I was thinking, a test-lesson. For her birthday.
(There will also be, of course, other gifties. I'm leaving it up to OmegaDad--all I have to do is keep reminding him to keep it light. Otherwise, he'll drown the girlchild in stuff.)
So I'm enlisting my (vast hordes) of readers to keep me on the straight and narrow. I need a nag. Not a horse-type nag, a human-type nag. The horse-lesson provider is available all days except Tuesdays and Thursdays. Email me at omegamom_01 at yahoo dot com this Friday to make sure I have contacted said provider and made arrangements. Please.
