We don’t always throw big birthday parties for our kids, but when we do, we try to make it fun. It usually ends up being stressful for weeks leading up to the party and there are several moments I want to say, “Eff this! Let’s go get pizza instead.”
It’s nice to turn our attention to something silly though and fuss about little details after a few months of fussing about quite real and important things.
We also have great kids who are sweet, considerate and work quite hard to be good kids. Also, we like having fun too.
