Most parents have a basic idea about what’s expected at a child’s birthday party: Cake. Balloons. Gifts. While this is pretty common fare on a parent’s “party planning for kids” cheat sheet (kidding, there’s no such thing), one thing that doesn’t come standard is the ability to think outside the box. Rebecca is a Missouri mom who hosted a poop-inspired birthday party for her daughter that truly is the sh*t in such an awesome way.
After speaking with her daughter Audrey on numerous occasions about her upcoming birthday, this mom quickly realized there was just no way she was going to get around every kid’s favorite thing to talk about: poo. As unconventional as that birthday party theme may be, Rebecca’s sweet girl wanted to celebrate her third birthday with “poop,” and that’s exactly what she got.
Decking out her St. Louis home with poop-inspired items — like a poop emoji piñata and matching balloons — Rebecca and her husband gave little Audrey a birthday party she’ll never forget. The party actually took place in October, but the amazing photos are just now going viral.
“[Audrey] was THRILLED!” Rebecca tells CafeMom. “I will never forget how excited she was when she came down the stairs and saw everything. To see how happy she was, was totally worth whatever embarrassment I felt wearing a poop costume.”
As Rebecca tells the Huffington Post, “I feel like in this time of Facebook and Pinterest, we sometimes get caught up in trying to impress other adults. This party wasn’t for me, it was for Audrey. I love that we will look back at pictures, and it will represent her at 3 — my funny and quirky little girl.”
