What a 5 year old wants, for her birthday!

Well my soon to be 5 year old wants everything!  Every commercial for pooping dog toys I hear a, "I want that" or every infomercial for some strange Snackez container I hear a, "I want that mommy."  I tell ya, kids these days...

When we run to Tarjay she likes to show me the certain toys she likes.  I'm hearing things like, "can I have this for Christmas" in the middle of April.  Seeing as her birthday is at the end of this month, what! I thought I'd share with y'all what we got her for the big 5!  Its surreal to me that my baby girl is growing up so quickly.  Where is that dang pause button?!

She has a little kitchenette in her room that she got for Christmas a couple years ago, but its definitely seen better days.  The oven burners are all worn off.  The oven door was completely broken off a few months ago, my girls are great at rough housin'!  So I mentioned a while back a new kitchen would be nice and she went over the moon for the idea.  Hopefully she still feels that way when she sees her new Sundae Kitchen from Zulily. This one is bigger and better and I'm pretty sure she'll be baking her heart out!
I decided to stay on the cooking path and picked up this Smoothie Set, also from Zulily.  Amira is obsessed with fake food, and pretending to cook. When ever anyone comes over to the house, such as Mario's friends or my friends she asks them first off if they'd like to see her room <3 This online shopping site is a good place for moms to get in trouble ;)  I love all these wooden toys and the pretty pastel colors they use.  Makes me want to go whip up a fresh smoothie myself!
I picked up a few odds and ends of clothing items she needs, like jammies and Summery clothes but those are less on the exciting scale to her.  I will say it again that time is flying by with my little ones.  Turning 5 is such a big deal, like a kiddie right of passage.  Amira is, and always will be my baby girl.  Despite the fact she keeps telling me, "mommy, I'm a big girl now" with her big baby blues looking up at me.  You know the look.


  1. That little kitchen is adorable! No worries, I'm desperately looking for the pause button as well lol.

  2. Aw, she's going to love her new kitchen & smoothie maker! Oh man, just hearing about another kiddo claiming to be a "big girl" now, slays me. I can't imagine what it'll be like when it's my own...

  3. I LOVE Zulily. I have to stay away from there and only allow myself to look once in awhile. That kitchen is so adorable, I want it for myself! :)

  4. This is adorable!!! She will love, what a lucky little girl!
