There was a time, not all that long ago, when I would have planned an extraordinary birthday party for my child. Complete with hand made party favors, well thought out tablescape and definitely some cute, well thought out (mailed) invitations. But times, as Bob Dylan says, they are a changing and as the wise Sweet Brown points out…. “ain’t nobody got time for that.” You didn’t know I had such wise wisdon within me did you?
A family beach trip, publix cake with a green alligator on top, and some cousins for good measure are all you really need. Whoila! A mobile birthday party.
And here’s a quick reminder of what it looks like to have a Mama that plans a ‘real’ party for her kid.
And the irony of it all? He was every bit as happy with his slice of cake and one present that he opened. (okay, he actually did ask me ‘why I only get one present’ as we left the party– but all in all a great success!).
