What Every 5 Year Old Needs, Besides for a Dog

I'm no longer in the 'attending weddings' circuits, I have now found my social calendar filling up with invitations to 5th birthday parties.


The most recent 5th birthday party we attended had a ballerina tea party theme.

Fortunately, we know a thing or two about tea parties and being a ballerina.


The  birthday girl, whom we've entertained for the occasional play date or two, is an admirer of Riley {I overheard her whisper sweetly in Riley's ear, 'I love you, Riley'}.  I jokingly suggested to Grace {who is not so much an admirer of Riley} that we give Riley as a birthday gift.


Thankfully, Grace did not take my suggestion seriously because there is no way Riley would have fit into this bag {though, I am sure a few of her dog hairs did}.


So, in addition to a few store bought items (summer jammies and a puzzle for those of you who are curious), I included something homemade.


What does every 5 year old need, besides for a dog?  A tooth fairy pillow, of course. 


Want a tooth fairy pillow of your own?  Invite me to your birthday party or head over to my Etsy shop.

  3. Seriously, my daughters would have been *thrilled* to receive one of those! We actually have a friend who makes tooth fairy pillows (not tooth shaped, though) and both girls still sleep with theirs. In fact, Lucy writes regular letters to her tooth fairy (Tiff) and puts them in the little tooth holder so that Tiff can retrieve them. You are so thoughtful and creative!

  7. I could have used one of those a few weeks ago when my 7 year old son lost not only his 1st, but also his 2nd tooth in as many days! I told him if he keeps it up, we're going to have to set up an extra bed for that poor tired fairy...

    1. Ha! That poor tooth fairy is going to go broke at your house. 7, huh? I'd be happy if Grace's teeth waited until 7, too.

    Thanks for making me smile today.
    The pillows are a great idea, my boys received one when they were born. It was great fun to use...we are still using at 10 and 12! :-)

  16. Amy... I would of loved to have you be the mother of one of my daughters friends. I would of probably cried when I saw the personalized tooth pillow. And Riley? Cracks. Me. Up. I think she needs a pair of glasses to go with her expression.

  18. That's adorable! I bet that was the best gift... personally I always think the handmade (especially when personalized) are the best gifts! Do you personalize the one's you sell in your shop too?
