Confessions of an imperfect mom.....and my baby girl is 6!!!! ♥

It has been a bit busy in our world....with daughter Violet's birthday, her musical production at school, etc!  I have slacked in the blog department this week!!  On Thursday, I did manage to put together some cute birthday favors for Violet to take to school, and am proud of how they turned out!

I found glossy sticker paper at Office Depot, which made the sticker labels I made on the computer look "real!"  Cute, fun, and easy for her teacher to send home and not worry about :-) .  Leave it to a teacher mom to know!  We also donated a book to her class in honor of her birthday; her teacher has a special Birthday Bin and she puts a photo and dated label to help them feel special. 

Here's where my totally imperfect moment comes in:  Well I have always been one to make my own cakes or other sweets for events, and would pride myself in that......BUT.....this cake is from Cold Stone Creamery! 

There is a reason for this madness.  Who would have ever thought, the dry climate of Southern California would turn extremely HUMID, for the first time in hmmm 4 years.....on daughter's birthday, and wreak havoc on my little cake, before I even finished.  :-(  And this is my secret confession for Dirty Secret Saturday ;-) !

This became quite the unpleasant moment......ugh.  So off to Cold Stone for a ready-made. 

Daughter did have a nice birthday though, with Grandma and Grandpa visiting as an added bonus.  It was a simple family birthday, as we had offered her a tablet in exchange for a birthday party, which she had accepted!  (Another imperfect mom confession!)

There's always room for another Barbie...

or Loopsey in Wonderland....

And family time, well that is always priceless!

Happy 6th Birthday to my baby girl!!!
