I went a little overboard for HJ’s first birthday. Even his second birthday that I promised to keep low-key became a time-consuming event. For his 3rd birthday, I told myself not to make it a big deal. Keep it small. He recently had his fisher-price playdate where he received NUMEROUS toys, so we definitely didn’t need any more.
There were moments where I called about kid’s birthday parties to some local places, but ultimately decided he may have more fun doing those things when he is a bit older. And that way, I can save some money.
So ya know what? I actually stood by my word and kept it simple this year. I didn’t even make the cake!
HJ’s birthday was on Sunday, but we had a small party on Saturday evening. His cousins, aunt, uncle, nana, papa and 2 friends went to Chuck E. Cheeses.
I ordered his cake from a local grocery store (see, I didn’t do anything!)
And went to bed as a 2-year-old…
I love that it was a relaxing weekend for me, because I didn’t worry myself with party preparations.
I can’t believe my baby is 3 years old!
