In today’s wonderful but crazy world one thing is becoming increasingly obvious (to me anyway) - kid’s birthday parties are getting a tad out of hand.
This dawned on me recently as I, along with my children, have attended quite a few birthday celebrations for little people. These various [insert single digit] year-old’s parties usually contain at least one of the following ingredients; expensively catered food, wait staff, a jumping castle in the backyard, a hired entertainer i.e. magician/clown, a cake made by Donna Hay herself [ok slight exaggeration but you get the idea] and ‘lolly bags’ containing goodies worth double the gift bought for the birthday boy/girl!
Whatever happened to pin the tail on the donkey, homemade cake, fruit platter for a bit of energy and kids running around entertaining themselves in the backyard? As a mum of two with, at least for now, a modest family budget, I know I can’t replicate such costly experiences and do you know what? I’m not even sure if I really want to! Would most young kids actually care or notice all these (in my book anyway) excesses or am I just not keeping up with the times?
What is your experience of children’s birthday parties? And, for those with older kids I’d love to know (ok I’m a tini bit scared too) what to expect when it comes to the teenage years?
