Inadequacies as a mother? Are you kidding me? I think you are one of the most awesome moms ever.Your energy amazes me. I would love to be one of your kids although that would be hard to explain as I am older than you. Fabulous party. So cute. I had 3 boys and so missed out on all the girlie stuff. But there's always grandaughters!


Well H, you pulled it off again--another amazing B-day party for your little one! Love all your photos TFS. Quincy and friends R sooo cute. Happy Birthday Quincy. 6 already? How does it feel to be all dolled up? U have a FABULOUS Mom--give her lots of love and respect K? I'd love to meet your Grandmother someday too...we have a major life-altering event in common.


love your party stuff Heidi....the girls look so cute. Happy birthday quincy. TEna


Uh, Oh...I should be doing BPS assignments! Quincy, I forgot to add that I remember your birth LOs hanging up at ML and how happy your Mom was to finally have a girl--look how quickly she converted to the PINKside. You R a FABULOUS daughter.

How fun! What an adorable party. Looks like the girls had a blast. Happy Birthday Quincy.


Your glamour party is a GREAT idea!!!! My daughter turns 6 in November and I've been trying to figure out a fun idea to celebrate!!! I may have to take a stab at it. Thanks for sharing. Also, not that I am an expert but all it takes to be a great mom is the unconditional love and care you give them... But I know how you feel. Have a wonderful week!!!

What a fun girlie party! I hope you don't mind but I have been using you for some inspiration today and not the scrapping kind. See my daughter Anna was born about two weeks before you had Capri and now I just found out that my husband and I are expecting a little boy in four months. Don't ask how I ignored the fact that I'm five months pregnant for this long... it's a long story. However, when I saw my tiny baby's face on the ultrasound today I knew it would all be okay and I thought to myself, "If Heidi can be a great mom with two coming so close together AND have three other children and still have the time to be creative, then I can do it too." And of course I realize that every child is a blessing and God's plans are far greater than our own. So thanks for giving me a bit of comfort that things will work out for good since you have been so calm and cool about having two so close together.


Hey Heidi,

Great party decorations! Did you use a button maker for the invitations? And the pillow envelopes...did you buy them with polka dots on them already?

I am not naturally as talented as you or even close!

I read somewhere (can't remember where, so I can't cite the source) that "There is no ONE way to be a perfect mother, but there are a million ways to be a great one." As a striving perfectionist myself, this quote has completely changed my outlook on motherhood. Thought I'd share.
