Meanwhile at Mother & Baby
Recently I took my eldest daughter to a seven-year-old’s birthday party. The scene was vastly different to what would have occurred only two years ago.
There was not a sequin nor a scrap of tulle in sight. The event was free of Disney princesses and there wasn’t a set of fairy wings in site.
Instead the lovely, young ladies frolicked about in fashionable shorts and stylish tops. Much of their conversation centred on their favourite pop stars like Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and the fate of One Direction. Naturally, gossip about absent classmates was rife.
