ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A St. Louis mom received an unexpected answer when she asked her daughter how she would like to celebrate her third birthday: Rebecca's daughter Audrey said she wanted a "poop" theme party.

Her parents went with it, and gave her the party she wanted .

“I feel like in this time of Facebook and Pinterest, we sometimes get caught up in trying to impress other adults,” Rebecca told the Huffington Post . "This party wasn’t for me, it was for Audrey.

The party featured poop-shaped balloons and a cake. Guests reportedly played "pin the poop," and smashed an emoji-shaped piñata filled with Tootsie Rolls and Hershey’s Kisses. Rebecca even dressed up in a poop costume.

“It was Audrey’s party, so we wanted it to be something that she would love,” Rebecca explains to CBS News . “I love that we’ll look back at pictures and it will represent our quirky girl at three.”

The unconventional party took place in October at the family’s home in St. Louis.
