I am taking a day’s leave on Friday so I can sort out the girls’ party for Saturday properly. When Daniel turned 1 I was overseas at a Conference until 2 days before his birthday and my Grandmother passed away the day before his birthday, so I postponed his party to go to the funeral.
So, I promised myself that if I ever have more children, I would plan their 1st party better. For some reason this concept has also not taken in my hubby’s head. He doesn’t understand why you even want to have a party when they turn 1. He forgets that they will ask and want to see evidence when they grow up. AND I really want to give them a party!
So, the fairy party has now become a hybrid fairy/princess party and I really have to stop myself when I go into the shops to buy party stuff, it is SOOO much fun!
I have also caved in and enlisted my mother’s help this time around. I am always the unhappy recipient of unsolicited advice (parenting, cooking, religion, life in general) and mostly I block the useless info out, so we’ll see how it goes on Saturday! It must be the only downfall of having both sets of Grandparents around. All the advice. 24/7/365. Shame, my Mom must think I am a bit like a prickly cactus, but she is about as subtle as one, so hey.
Any other Mom’s get too much advice??
