Suri has the final say on all her birthday plans, from the theme down to the frosting on the cake, and her parents wouldn’t have it any other way. I don’t know about this…
I get that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise want “to make Suri happy” on her 5th birthday, but seriously — a whole month dedicated to party planning meetings, cake demands, and pre-celebration temper tantrums? 4-year-old Suri has way to much control over the Cruise clan.
“Her birthday is my favorite day of the year and I like to dedicate April to her birthday,” Katie told Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (April 4). “It’s a big day.”
First off, I get that Suri is your daughter, Katie, but your FAVORITE day?
“She really helps plan her party because I want her to be happy and so she wants her friends to come over, and a slumber party,” Katie explains. “So we make lists and we have meetings and she picks out things and she wants to make the cake together and frost it together.”
“There have been times when I’ve kind of done it all and she’s like ‘This isn’t the cake’ or whatever and I say, ‘OK, we’re going to do it together.’ And she’s really very, very good at it.” Good at what? Getting her way?
“We had a barbeque yesterday and she decorated the whole kids table and she made name cards for all the little girls,” Katie says. “It’s really sweet, I don’t want to stop that.”
I think it’s wonderful that Suri wants to plan her party, but she’s literally taking over! If my child ever told me that the cake I made “was not the cake” he/she wanted and told me I had to redo it, I don’t think I would be OK with that. Would you, HollyMoms?
Is this some sort of Scientology thing or is Suri just simply spoiled? No kid needs a month of birthday celebrations every year, it’s just unnecessary.
