Birthday party planning I mean. How in the world are we already coming up on my little munchkin's second birthday? I mean, wasn't he just one like two seconds ago?
Oy. But here we are, less than two months away from my crazy little dude's next birthday, and I'm kind of stuck. We didn't do a huge party for his first, but probably had 20 people (family and some close friends). I'm toying with the idea of doing something even smaller for his second. He still doesn't really "get" it and I figure we'll save the big blowout parties for the years down the road when he's all excited about them and in to it.
Does that make me a bad mom? Should I want to go all Pinterest-y, making cake pops and hand made decorations that he won't even notice? Am I supposed to be jumping at the chance to plan some cool theme party with coordinated desserts and a color scheme?
Because I'm not. I'd rather have a small family get together. Something simple and special. I'll make him a cake just like I did last year and we'll spend the day celebrating him, but I don't want to go overboard and waste a bunch of money on stupid details to impress others when he could not care less. I'll save that type of stuff for next year ;)
