It's my birthday tomorrow and my husband is going to be in bed for most of it cause he is on night shift but I am not gonna let that spoil my fun...I'm going out and as soon as I drop of my son at school I plan to have a great day, but I will have my 4 year old daughter with me. So basically I just want to know, what would you do for the day with a 4yr old in toe!? Nobody has any plans for me and I have to plan everything myself (even my cake  sad.gif  )

A bit of shopping, to buy yourself a lovely gift.
Then a nice lunch with your DD
Followed by taking a good book and your DD to a play centre - those ones where the kids just disappear for a few hours and you get to read peacefully. Choose one with a nice cup of coffee. OR, if you have one of those where you can leave her there, park her there for 2 hours and catch a movie.

Then buy a cake and take it home for celebration.

That's incredibly slack that you have to organise your own cake!!
Is there a way that your hubby can do it today ready for tomorrow?

Go get mani-pedi's. She can have clear or a tinted pink painted on her finger nails while you get pampered.
Go shopping? Movies? Not sure what your daughter will do (and how she will react to be dragged all over town wink.gif)

Have afternoon tea somewhere. She can have a milkshake and you can have whatever your little heart desires!

Happy Birthday  happy.gif

Nope he has left for work already sad.gif

Kid friendly shopping with coffee and cake or Moochi frozen yoghurt is a must at the moment.
The coconut one tastes like ice cream, and the kids love the little lychee, mango or strawberry pearls which they can burst in their mouth.

Me too - but the upside is that when I don't want to do anything I don't have to!

I was sick on my birthday last week - which really sucked, apart from that me and my son cooked a massive and very, very rich mudcake then made ganache to decorate it.

then we spent a week eating it (and by we I mean mostly me!)

I say shopping to buy a gift, my DS is really, really active but even he is occupied by shopping malls for an hour or so.

Happy Birthday Squeekems and Happy birthday for tomorrow OP biggrin.gif

I love the zoo so if it were a beautiful day I'd go to a deli, buy up big on expensive gourmet treats, and have a lovely picnic day with DD.

Happy b'day!

If I just have my four year old with me, she'd be happy with shopping and going to a cafe.  She also is quite good at theme parks, the museum, art gallery, etc.

ETA:  Happy Birthday for tomorrow!

What state are you in?

Also - you need to get meaner. My DH knows that his life isn't going to be worth living if he doesn't have birthday cake for me. I don't care if it's store bought, a friend has made it for him etc. There must be cake!!!

I am so sorry to hear you have to do everything for your bday sad.gif

If you had extra $$, I'd take a mystery flight interstate somewhere but I am not sure what state you are in. I would do something extravagant like that.* If I only had our 3 year old (almost 4 year old) with me.
I would go to Sydney and enjoy a lovely lunch, visit some places,shopping etc and then take a flight back
