(Technically, the kid wasn't so much of a fan of foxes, per se, as of that "What Does the Fox Say?" song, but I digress.)
This is exactly the sort of inspired nonsense that I live for. Parties should be personal, and what's more personal than mashing up two totally unrelated things? Bonus points if you can mash them up with this level of style:
- I'm prepared to call it: 2015 will be The Year of the Pineapple. Well, at my house, anyway. But I'm going to try to make it a thing elsewhere.
- I need a "Party Like a [Pineapple Wearing Sunglasses]" pillow, stat.
- This mother was fortunate that her child liked a song and a fruit that translated into a cute, citrus-colored party concept. Both of our boys, oddly, were obsessed with Earth Wind & Fire's "September" as wee ones, although neither one knew the true title until years later. Big Kid called it the "Oh-Dee-Oh Song," because of the chorus, and Little Kid called it "Night-A-Gruseum," because it was featured at the end of the film, "Night at the Museum," which Big Kid was watching on a continuous loop. In terms of food, Big Kid's most notable culinary achievement as of age two was a chile relleno, and Little Kid liked carrot cake. So, trying hard to mash up Earth Wind & Fire, cheese-stuffed chile peppers and carrot cake, and kinda failing.
- When I say "coupla things," I almost never mean a couple of things.
