That’s right my oldest is now double digits and turned 10 on July 17th.
Of course, we had to do it up big – Disney style. We spent the day at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. Because that happens to be her favorite of the Walt Disney World Parks.
Her actual 10th birthday on July 17th also happened to be the late-night for Disney resorts guests. Since we stayed on Disney property at Disney Polynesian Resort, we were able to take advantage of the extra magic hours and party it up in style. See the Magic Kingdom was open for resort guests until midnight that night.
Honestly, I am not sure she could have had a better birthday celebration for entering her double digits if she tried!
When asked how her 10th birthday was, she told us that it was absolutely perfect and magical. So, I think you could say it was a success.
That said, we are now newly back home. Therefore, it is time for my girl’s annual birthday questionnaire. If you missed last year and her 9th birthday responses find it here. But now, scroll on for this year’s current Double Digits favorites.
My Oldest’s Favorites at Double Digits or 10 Years Old
1. Favorite Color
Right at the start, the very first question I always ask her hasn’t changed in the last few years. That’s right, she is still Team Pink all the way! See, my girl absolutely still adores the color pink.
2. Favorite Movie
In the past, my oldest was all for the Trolls Movie. Then she switched it up with Beauty and The Beast the Live Movie being tops. But this year, when asked, she immediately told me that Mama Mia Here We Go Again was indeed her new favorite movie.
3. Favorite TV Show
Last year, her favorite show was Bunked. But this past year, my husband got her into the new Duck Tales show. So, now the ducks seem to rule in her TV viewing favorites by far.
4. Favorite Book
My girl has pretty much read all the Dork Diaries books. So make sense, she has moved onto a new book series. This one, I couldn’t be more happy about if I tried. She has finally begun to read the Harry Potter series for herself. She is currently almost on Book 3 and readily admits she just can’t get enough of Harry’s adventures!
5. Favorite Song
She is now seemingly over all things Beauty and the Beast. But still, Disney reigns supreme as when asked her favorite song. This year, she admitted that Happily Ever After (song) from Disney World’s nighttime fireworks extravaganza is a favorite musical number. Apparently having just newly returned from Disney this one is still near and dear to her heart.
6. Favorite thing to drink
Apparently, plain water has been pushed aside. As when asked, Ginger Ale is now the new favorite beverage choice for my now 10 year double digits daughter. And yet when pushed about our recent trip, she lived on Lava Smoothies!
7. Favorite thing she likes to do
Spending with time with her sister and her dog is now tops on her list. The nine days she was away from our dog, Elsa has only made her love our dog that much more. And her younger sister by 16 months is her built-in best friend apparently, as well.
8. Favorite thing to eat
When I asked this question, she first told me a steak. But then, I mentioned what about candy or ice cream? And then, she seemed to recall that ice cream is indeed her favorite.
9. Favorite Animal
This one hasn’t ever changed. Apparently, my girl still loves dogs. Mainly, this favorite hasn’t changed, because of our dog, Elsa.
10. Favorite thing to wear
Clearly, it is summer-time and very hot out. Because when I asked, she very clearly told me that a sundress was her favorite piece of clothing to wear right now.
11. Favorite Job when she gets older
Another, one similar to number 9, because it still hasn’t changed. My oldest still very much wants to be a teacher when she grows up.
There you have it with my Double Digits birthday girls favorite for this year. What will her favorites be for her 11th birthday? Find out next year – same bat-time, same bat-channel!
Happy 10th Birthday to my now Double Digits Daughter!!
