πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰ Happy Birthday, Lil Princess! A Little Mix Experience!

Today is the day my little baby, my Lil Princess hits double figures!

I can’t believe I am a mother to not one but two kids aged 10 and above!

SheΒ has requested a few things, as kids do, but the main present, well she had that already! Just this last Saturday actually!

Long gone are the days of mooning over One Direction – check out her 7-year-old drawings of them here – instead, it is time for Little Mix fever!

We have spent the last few weeks hearing their cd on repeat in anticipation of her birthday treat.

A few months back, when I went to the local theatre, I noticed an ad for a show called The Little Mix Experience. A tribute band who played a whole show in the Little Mix way. And it was a few days before her birthday…

Now, I don’t know about you, but I am not keen on the idea of spending around Β£100 per ticket to see a band… not at her tender years anyway, so this was an ideal opportunity to introduce her to concert culture, in a controlled environment!

We decided that it would be a great treat for her to go with a few friends to see this show.

So, on Saturday, Lil Princess, along with 4 special friends, and one of the mums (who is my special friend) went to see her first concert!

She managed to wrangle a free glowstick from the merchandise man, as I was talking to the lady at the box office, by saying it was her birthday, and then I felt obliged to buy the little bear too!

The show?

Well, we had an awesome time! The audience was full of families and young girls who were Little Mix Crazy and the band didn’t disappoint!

They sang a great mix of new and old hits, along with a couple of covers, and got the whole audience singing and dancing!

And at the end, they did a meet and greet, which was so busy, with all these mini Little Mixers clamouring for photos with the (not real) Little Mix that we ended up slipping away!

I managed to get a couple of videos of them singing (excuse me crooning along to Reggaeton Lento, I couldn’t help it!) for your viewing pleasure!

I am currently trying to remove the CD surreptitiously from the car stereo… but it’s not easy, and to be honest, I quite like Little Mix too!

All that remains is to say Happy Birthday to my gorgeous Lil Princess.

Stop growing up so fast, and making me feel old!

Love you to the moon and back, my sweet girl ❀

A poem I penned for her a few years ago

The biggest blessing of my life,
Becoming a mummy, after being a wife.
I love them both equally, yes, it’s true
But with my girl, the things we can do!
Shopping, dressing up, hair styles, nails
And when she’s older, advice about males!
She amazes and frustrates in equal amounts
But the love that she gives, now that’s what counts.
When there are tears, it tears at my heart,
I hate it whenever we are apart.
The giggles and laughter, that beautiful sound,
She lights up my life, when she is around.
I love my girl, and I’m lucky to be
The mummy to someone so very crazy!

    Beautiful poem, Ritu. And, what a special gift you gave her – a concert with her friends and mother. I’m sure it’s a memory she will always cherish. I can tell by your writing that you have a very loving relationship. I have the same with my mother. She was a great mother growing up, and now she is my best friend. I hope the same for you and your daughter. Thanks for sharing!

    #milestonemoment. Double figures, the beginning of the end of cute sweet innocence into welcome to teenage angst and get out of my space angst. Sounds like you picked a fabulous birthday treat Ritu…or, go on, admit it… that was coincidence and you wanted to go really yes πŸ˜‰

    Hope you all had a brilliant time and belated happy birthday to her from me #GaTu

    Aww…what a beautiful poem. I’ve never heard of Little Mix. Maybe they haven’t made it over to the States yet. But I do remember taking my youngest to his first concert at 11 and his obsession with then playing the band constantly. I miss those days as my boys are a bit older now.

      Oh don’t! I dread the time they think they are too old for mummy and daddy! But then from own experience, I know you always come back to them.I couldn’t imagine a life without my parents hugs and support even now in my 40’s!

        You are a lucky girl.
        Both my parents passed away before I was 40. My father passed away before I came to USA. I did not see my mother for six years after I came to USA. I went back after six years, was there for a month and she passed away three months after that. I feel fortunate that I could be with her for that month but always repent that I could not / did not stay long enough.
