Under the big top.

This is how I see clowns, they terrify me, always have and probably always will.
Even as a child my parents recall me screaming at the sight of one.
You can imagine the horror when I asked Jillian what theme she wanted for her 4 th birthday party and she sweetly replied that she wanted clowns!!!
I am a big girl and yes I can do this, okay this is what I keep telling myself, LOL.
For now, I am planning on having an "Under the big top" birthday theme and yes, the kids are going to dress as clowns, ahhhhh...
I can do this, I can do this, breath....

Good grief!!! I am scared of them, too! I am proud of you, my friend, for conquering this fear for the sake of a good party : )

Oh my,

Good luck with your Clown party.
All Zoe wants is a princess cake,
the one we see every week at the grocery store. So we have decided to go with a Princess theme.

I'm SO with you about the fear of clowns. My fear started after seeing the movie "Poltergeist"...*cringe*

You can do it. Just take a lot of deep breaths. They will be cute girly clowns.

Oh Kerri, deep breaths. I feel for you! My Kerri likes bugs and I am terrified of them, and the last thing I want to do is pass my fear(s) on to her. I know this is going to be hard, but you can do this for your girls, I know you can! Maybe I should send you my recipe for the "cup of courage" (sparkling sangria) drink I always make for these occasions. Trust me, a few glasses and you won't care about the clowns anymore!

I have always been scared of clowns too! My Mom always told me all the places she had to avoid with me because of them.

You will get through this...
The things we do for the sake of our children:)

Oh, My Gosh Kerri! If that is how I saw clowns I would be terrified of them too! Please, oh, please get that scary monster thing off of your blog! lol

Heidi said...

THAT is funny (sorry)!
How many kids are you having? I'd be terrified of having a handful of kids for a themed party at all! YOU are brave!

Lisa said...

Clowns have never bothered me but I have a lot of friends that are. Maybe you could keep a bowl of "Mommy punch" safely tucked away in the kitchen. Just a suggestion (wink). I'm sure you'll do alright.

oh you and me both woman!

Steffie B. said...

oh dear.....just pour yourself a drink....that's one scary clown!

Jonni said...

I hate them too Kerri! Have you seen that movie "It" by Stephen King? Now that's scary.

I have always hated clowns and always will. You are braver than me for planning the birthday party. You are a great mama.

Hugs,
Jonni

I've got plenty of phobias myself that other people don't get. I too have to suck it up. Proves you're a great mom!
