The Little Man's birthday is coming up and this year has been really unorganized and overwhelming. With renos coming up, it's simply not safe to hold the party at our home, so we're going to one of those gym places - they take care of the mess and entertainment. It's a little pricey, but worth my peace of mind.
Parties are a big deal to me though - maybe it's more for me, but I am really big about celebrating his life because I feel so lucky to have him. In his case, I also know he really likes them.
As a kid, I always wanted a big surprise party and no one ever did that for me (still!). Apparently, I enjoyed my parties and then got tired of everyone and wanted them all to leave! But my son isn't like me in that way. He really likes having the attention.
He also really likes singing "Happy Birthday" and blowing out candles. He is much better at being the life of the party than I ever was.
Anyway, I'm not sure who's more excited, but I know I can't wait :)
