So after surviving through his 2 hour birthday with only 10 kids (I cut back his list because I did not want 27 kids running around my house!) I decided I need to write a little post for all of you busy moms and dads out there that want to throw a fun party for your kids, but do not have the time. Or maybe you do, but you want to enjoy the party and remember it when it is over. Even as a planner, I wish I had someone there to do the dirty work so I could have enjoyed my friends and family and watched Jack play with his friends!
If you have awesome ideas and have the time to do it all - GREAT! More power to you! Then what I would highly recommend is hiring someone to come in for a couple of hours to help set up, keep drinks, food, etc, stocked up and to clean up after. Oh man do I wish I had someone to clean up!
If you have awesome ideas but have no clue how to do it, then we can also help you with bringing your ideas to life, or helping to create some new, fun ideas as well. This is what we live for!
The moral of the story is, enjoy your party and your friends. Just because it is your kid's party, doesn't mean that you can't have fun too! Trust me, it will be totally worth it!
