Saving My Birthday Crazy

     As someone with a Christmas birthday, in spite of my parents best efforts I was sometimes disappointed.  This was because getting friends to come to a party between Christmas and New Years is like Mission Impossible.  For that reason, I go completely overboard on my kids' birthday parties to make sure they always feel like their day was special.

     I know I've talked a lot about school, but trust me, that was better than the alternative.  Hearing about my school saved you all from the crazy that is me in July.  Blondie and Dude have birthdays 20 days apart and I get complete birthday fever.  

      So instead of subjecting you all to that insanity, I chose to share it with Amanda at Life, Experience Necessary.  Amanda is off on a vacation with her family and I was flattered when she invited me to do a guest post for her.  Please stop by and check out how I'm learning to keep the crazy in check.

Before you head over to Amanda's place, can you spare a click for a crazy lady?

  3. I sort of know how you feel, my birthday sometimes falls on Thanksgiving... I always wished it was in the spring or summer growing up so I could have a nice outdoor party like my friends always seemed to.

    1. I swore I wouldn't have a baby in Nov, Dec, or Jan because it seems they always get short changed. In spite of myself, I have a girl with a Nov birthday. Best laid plans...

    1. Do you ever combine their birthday parties? I did that for my boy and girl for years until I decided the boy needed a special boy party. Now I wish I could go back to combining them. Life was easier then.
