Tasmyn turned 9 on the weekend. She had been wanting a Blythe doll since January and, well, she knew she was getting one cos when she asked me outright I couldn't lie. So she'd been counting the days till her Blythe was "born" (they share a birthday of course). In honour of her Blythe, named Scarlet May a long time before she was born, she wanted a Blythe birthday party. Of course that demanded a Blythe cake. According to the internet no one has ever made a Blythe cake before (?!!!) so I was on my own.
She was very excited that her birthday was on a Saturday cos it meant she could have her party on her ACTUAL birthday! She had a fantastic time at her party and had a wonderful birthday. That night when I put her to bed she cuddled Scarlet and said "It's just fascinating that what I've imagined is finally here for real. Words can't even describe it... fun... happy... excited... I'm just soooooo happy she's here! Thank you thank you." I was telling Dave, with all the emotion... and he said "hang on... I think that's NIDA on the phone." She's very dramatic!
