Birthdays…

My little ladies will be turning three in October! It is unbelievable how quickly time flies. I’m curious…how big a party have you (or will/would you) thrown for your toddler? There is so much hype nowadays with parties for children. Maybe it started because of MTV’s Sweet Sixteen and grew from there? I’m not sure of the origins but it seems a bit much to me. Shows like TLC’s Outrageous Kids Parties kind of scare me. I just don’t believe in spending thousands of dollars on parties that are more for the adults than kids. One mom even bought her 6 year old a car for her birthday. A CAR! There is only one word for that…INSANE.

I am, however, all for decorations, fun themes, and lots of friends and family! Courtney Novogratz, when asked how she handled her seven kids’ birthday parties famously said “I invite some friends over and bake a Fucking cake”. Ha! I think I am more of that school of thought.  I do want them to feel special and to know that they are loved. Those are my biggest goals for the day because in the end it’s not about what toys they got or what outfit they wore but about celebrating their lives and the love they have brought into all of ours.

I am curious as well about how all you moms (and dads) of multiples handle twin birthdays? Do you celebrate them together? Give them separate cakes or parties or anything like that?
