For Valentine's Day, Jake and I got Mimsey a Dora the Explorer mylar balloon. We picked it up when we were grocery shopping about a week before Valentine's day, because the store had a whole aisle filled with balloons and Mims just went crazy for them. I probably walked up and down that aisle 10 times before we could leave. Anyway, the thing is still floating. It looks brand new. Mims is still crazy for it.
So today we were beginning preparations for her party, and since she loved her Dora balloon, I went to the Dollar Tree and got her 10 more balloons. It sounds so silly, but she literally spent 2 hours playing with them. She ran around the house with them. She took them one by one into the kitchen, and then she came in to get me to show me that they were in the kitchen. Then she wanted to dance in the kitchen, because the curling ribbon hanging from the balloons looked like a party. So we danced.
Best present ever!! (and she's enjoying them too!)
