I called my mother tonight while I was roaming aimlessly around the dollar store, trying to figure out what to do for Luke's impending birthday party on Friday.
Mom: Well... what's the theme?
Mom: Hmmm, the theme of the party is birthday... very interesting.
This will be Luke's first "real" birthday party. I always swore I would never do this for a 3 year old, but, unfortunately, he knows what is going on now and has been asking me for a party for the past 6 months. What can I say? I caved.
It's not that I don't do themes, it's that I have a hard time doing a theme for a kid who doesn't care about a theme. The way I see it, the only reason I would do a theme is to impress the parents of the invited children. I read your blogs. I see the insanely creative ideas, super cute cakes, and really fun themed parties. I just can't compete... and I'm lazy.
[It also doesn't help that half the invited guests have not RSVP'd. I don't know if I should plan on 5 kids or 10. It is driving me crazy.]
So... pray that it doesn't rain, because we're going to use the awesome Slip n' Slide at the party. Pray that people come. Pray that this lame party doesn't scar Luke socially for life.
