My parents threw me one birthday party when I was around 4 years old.  I don’t remember much from the party except that it was an exceptionally sunny and cheery day.  I remember running around outside with my friends, and that is about it.  I am certain there was a cake and gifts.

I don’t think we played any games, and there certainly weren’t any party favors.  Were there balloons?  Maybe… Streamers? Doubt it.  I am the youngest of three children, born in the mid 70’s, so I am betting my mom kept things fairly simple.

I just survived planning and executing my oldest daughter’s 6th birthday party.   It took me one full month to put the whole bash together.  I had big plans for her this year, big plans.  You see, last year for her 5th party I really tried to knock it out of the park. (more…)
