Somebody stop the (Birthday) Maddness!!

Is is the season? Is it the weather?? We have seriously had 2 or more birthday parties every weekend for the past two months. I, for one never need to see Safari Run, again. And the presents! My God, the presents! What kid needs 30 presents for their 4th birthday?? Not mine! I don't have room in our house. We have always kept our parties pretty low key. At a park. With a treasure hunt. No bounce houses,clowns or ponies over here. But it's getting hard to keep up, when the kids are invited to these kind of parties. And the pinata? Really, who thought of this? Hey, I know, let's get 30 kids hopped up on sugar and then give them a baseball bat.. And watch them trample each other to get more candy than they could possibly eat in a year. Sounds fun! So I made a deal. I told the kids they could have a party at one of these party playhouse type places if they have it together. Their birthdays are 6 weeks apart, so it seems reasonable. I'll let you know how it goes...

Oh, I hear this. It is sort of insane around here. October is our big birthday month. I just don't get the $10,000 kids birthday party stuff. It is hard to keep it low key when you kid goes to all the big birthday parties...and you feel you should reciprocate. However, we are doing it...keeping it lower key than the Jones.
