This past week I have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest working on making decorations for Annabel’s birthday parties. Yes, I said parties. First, she has decided on a sleep over with a few girl friends and we are also having a cookout to include all of our friends who have boys or who have little ones too small for a sleep over.
For the slumber party I am not decorating as much however, I am planning more activities for the girls. I feel like the less down time they have then the less of the silly girl fights we will have, as we have had in previous sleep overs. I really want this first venture into the world of slumber parties to be an enjoyable one for her and I am definitely feeling the pressure to make things perfect.
I know that I shouldn’t stress so much over a birthday party, I am sure she will enjoy herself regardless of what decorations are hanging on the walls or what games we play but I just feel like turning 8 is a big deal, well it is to me anyways! So off to purchase tissue paper and other crafts items to make this the best party I can….I’ll post pics of my crafts soon!
Do you stress over giving your children great birthday parties?
