I have never understood the big parties either. Why are parents spending so much money on these things?! Every year you have to come up with something bigger and better. CRAZY!! My suggestion, save all that money you are spending on your kids party and put it into a "fund" towards a nice family vacation. Your kids will remember those times much more than how many tickets they won and what silly plastic prize broke on the way home.
Every single comment is like a little present I anticipate as I unwrap it. Thanks for making my day!
