Mom goes beyond the call to give toddler a poop-themed birthday party

This No. 2 party receives first place for creativity.

Never has being a party pooper been more fun.

In October a St. Louis mom named Rebecca and her husband threw 3-year-old Audrey the birthday party of her dreams, centered around an unconventional, albeit creative, theme: poop.

According to the Huffington Post, the parents decided to “embrace the weird” and fulfill the feces festivities after months of Audrey’s poo pestering.

“For months, every time we mentioned her party, Audrey requested ‘poop balloons and a poop cake,’” Rebecca told the Huffington Post. “I tried suggesting other themes, but she always insisted on poop.”

And boy did they deliver on the deuces. Guests played pin the poop on the toilet, smashed a poop emoji piñata filled with chocolate candy, and got to enjoy Rebecca’s poop costume amid poop-shaped balloons, cookies, and doodie-decorated cake. Rebecca said the party perfectly portrayed her daughter’s poopy-partyin’ personality.

“Audrey is definitely her own person,” Rebecca said. “I hope she always has the confidence she has now. She is so funny and the best big sister.”

Ultimately, Rebecca hopes her daughter’s dung decor shows other parents that Pinterest board-perfect parties without their children in mind just lead to total waste.

“I feel like in this time of Facebook and Pinterest, we sometimes get caught up in trying to impress other adults,” Rebecca said. “This party wasn’t for me, it was for Audrey. I love that we will look back at pictures, and it will represent her at 3—my funny and quirky little girl.”
