A Spa Party?

This song is so stuck in my head! It's one of my favorites and we did at Church on Sunday and it just plays over and over in my head! (pause the music at the bottom and press play!)


So...tomorrow I'm taking my girls to a Spa Party for Maggie's friend Sara's fourth birthday. I've had mixed reactions when I tell people that we're going to a children's spa to celebrate the birthday of a four year old. Callie wasn't invited, but when I told the mom that I was keeping her during the summer she insisted that Callie join in the fun. Needless to say, Callie was fully prepared to do her own nails and make up before the party!!
We do hair, nails and make up on a regular basis around here, but I don't put a lot of emphasis on it. I never want Maggie or Ellie (Callie either) to think that they have to wear make up or do their nails to be pretty, loved or accepted. I do insist that hair is out of eyes when we go anywhere where it might get in the way. (nothing worse than trying to do art at Church or preschool while your hair keeps getting in the paint!)

My birthday is coming up soon and I'd love to spend a little time with my out of town Mommy-friends at a spa! (More details on my upcoming birthday celebration later.)

What do you think, is a Spa Party for a four year old appropriate??

Very interesting! Personally, I don't think there is anything wrong with playing dress up, having a tea party and putting a little dab of polish on the nails. However, can't we let little girls be little girls without the makeup and turning it into a grown up thing? In reality, there's nothing harmful about it but is it necessary for four year olds to have a spa party? Why can't they just run around the upstairs wearing their princess outfits and plastic shoes while playing around the doll house.

Exactly the reason I don't watch that Toddlers and Tiaras show. It makes me sick to see little girls being made into adults.

Can't wait to hear about the spa party...wondering if they will keep it simple and geared for little ones appropriately. sounds fun! I agree with Tara's post. have fun!

I think the spa party idea is great! I always loved playing with makeup and doing my hair when I was little, I'd love to have a little girl to do those things with...
