2nd birthday party??
So my boyfriend and I are in the midst of house hunting and our little ones 2nd birthday party is coming up in two months. I'm not sure if it's the stress of life or maybe because I'm a crappy mom :/ but I have ZERO motivation to throw him a birthday party :/ Last year for his 1st birthday party, around this time I had the theme and decorations picked out! I was super excited probably because it was his 1st birthday party. However, for this year I considered doing it at like a chuck e cheese but my boyfriends family is HUGE. I mean, like 15 aunts and uncles plus their kids plus their kids kids! Sooo that would be extremely pricey per child. And in his culture, it's extremely rude to invite one family and not the other... Our apartment is somewhat big and if we did it at home, we'd only be inviting a select amount of people due to the amount of space , maybe like 5-7 kids tops with their parents but I don't want to have to host it and entertain people and have kids running around touching everything with their pizza hands like last year. So my question for you mommas out there, or dads, is it just me being a pretty terrible mom for not having the motivation of wanting to throw my son a birthday party or is this pretty normal? Because I feel pretty bad for not wanting to do anything for his big day. And yes I know he is only turning 2 but I grew up in a home where my birthdays were celebrated year after year.
