My lesson for this week is how to plan a three year olds birthday party.
Most people would assume that this is as easy as one..two..three, but as a first time parent it requires a lot more concentration and creativity. I also know that most of us as parents want our cildren to have a exciting party. First, you have to pick a theme for the birthday party. This monday Laye's birthday theme was Minnie Mouse. Second, it takes the time to buy the decorations for the party, ordering the cake, and making a list of everyone you want to come. Now you must remember it is best to keep all this in the same theme. Laye's party had around twenty-five people at our house, and it was such a mad house. We had lots of pizza, and chicken wings. The funny thing is Laye started crying when we sang ' happy birthday' to her, and no one knew why. She recieved lots of presents from clothes, dolls, balloons, and even a new princess riding jeep. The first thing she did was go outside in her new car, and start driving it around with her cousin. Now I could tell my daughter will be a real girly-girl cause she looked at me while driving her new jeep to say, " mommy, will you go get my purse?" All I could do was laugh, because every girl knows they can't leave the house without there purse. So my advice for all future parents is plan your childs party in a theme that they enjoy. Don't spend your money on real high price toys, because most likely they will play with them once and throw them down. Last but not least just have a good time cause they are only little once!!!!!
