Birthday parties for kids
What’s the deal with kids birthday parties?
Am I so old and out of touch? When I was a kid you’d invite a couple of friends over and go sledding or have water fights, maybe a bbq and have some cake.
Now it’s “invite the whole damn class, book some crazy venue, better have treat bags or the mommies be angry, and we need to outdo ourselves every year. Why?
Do your kids really need that many presents? And how do you keep topping that every year?
Whatever happened to small intimate family affairs?
Yes I do have kids and no we don’t attend birthday parties nor do we host them. We do a small family celebration that’s it. Does anyone else do that too or is it all this big materialistic to do?
