My two oldest kids are born 9 days apart (in the same hospital room actually), usually we have family in town for Thanksgiving and we just celebrate on the Friday after but this year, we decided to have a real party. Piglet turned 6, and Blueberry will be 4 next week so we thought it was time to have a party. Hubs’ office has a lot of little kids so I made up some invitations and reserved a couple lanes at the bowling alley.
I don’t know about you but I always see viral stories about poor kids having no one show up to their parties and boo-hoo. It made inviting people very stressful. Although we didn’t tell the kids that friends would be coming, I thought that it would be a good surprise if anyone even showed up. Granted, I handed out invitations 4 days prior to the party day so I can’t blame the guests completely but we didn’t have very many RSVPs. Luckily, the kids didn’t care because they really like bowling. Even Mac, who was pwning the other kids.
We bowled for about 2 hours, which was 1.5 games for these distracted kids. We also got some pizza and ended up having 2 families show up. All in all, it was a nice time. The kids had a blast and got a couple presents too. I made the kids write thank you notes the next day and it was honestly too cute. Blueberry can write half her name and Piglet can do his whole name. I’m all about manners from a young age.
Now that we’ve done 1 party, the next few should be easier right?
