As I've mentioned before, I hang with a group of ladies I met back when Boo was a baby. The kids have grown up as friends and now we're attempting to do the same for our babies.
One of the moms is also a bit unconventional just like me with a daughter who's just as unique as Miss Boo. But now, both of them have totally out-wacked us in the wacky department. I mean that as a compliment.
Her daughter, who also sailed through her test for the gifted education program, is about to turn 4. Her mom asked what kind of birthday party she wanted. Care Bears? Backyardigans? You'll never guess what theme her daughter asked for. Never in a million years.
Yes, Richard Nixon.
Her daughter has a place mat with the faces and names of all the American Presidents and has become fascinated with Richard Nixon. As my friend was telling us this fact, her daughter was sitting there going, "I cannot tell a lie! Tricky Dick!"
So, how do you carry out a Richard Nixon theme for a four year old? Her mom is decorating the room with red, white, and blue streamers. She printed pics of Richard Nixon to hang around the room. She got a red, white, and blue pinata and will place Nixon's picture on the front. She got Nixon campaign buttons off Ebay. She's even giving her daughter a Nixon paper doll kit. I didn't ask about the invites or the cake, but you know they are going to be a hysterical.
Richard Nixon. I mean, what four year old would ask for a Richard Nixon themed birthday party? The fact that her mom is running with it is just classic.
