What It Was Like Welcoming My Tween Home

First of all, I must say… having a tween in the home is not easy. Between the overly dramatic emotions, the demands, and diva land, I’d say the road ahead will be quite a mess. 😣

Since my daughter spends her summers in AZ with her biological father, we decided we would throw an on the fly surprise welcome home party. Only, our goal was to stick with a lower budget. I managed to already have a roll of paper from my son’s painting easel which lucky enough made for a great banner (see photo aboveπŸ˜œπŸ‘†) and markers, which my daughters BFF already had and you’re looking at a cost of $10 so far for the supplies.


Her best friend made her a cake

Which came out delicious by the way. I’d say the cost of that labor of love may have been $15 at most 😁 $30 if you really want to appreciate a cake made by a tween. 😜🀘

Next, I decided.to go simple with food and order a pizza. Mmm can’t ever go wrong with pizza…am I wrong? That cost was $23 for three medium pizzas. πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•

Next, came the welcoming. I have yet to edit and upload the video to our YouTube channel, but I shall soon.

As I watched my daughter rush up and wrap her arms around my 6-year-old honey bear, I realized he may be her favorite. πŸ€” either way, we played twister, compared fidget spinners, attended despicable me 3 in movie theatres, and had dinner the next night at an Asian resturaunt that was to die for πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ

Even though she can be quite the bratty tween sometimes, she most definitely appreciated the effort, and energy that went into her return.
