Ah, the things we are willing to do for our offspring! I don’t consider my kid being spoiled. Yeah, she does get showered in gifts by grandparents a few times a year, but my husband and I aren’t big on that at all. Ok, maybe I am in denial about it, but in my heart I don’t believe in loving with gifts (maybe with food, but that’s a whole another story). Our current strategy is — we don’t hold back on books, everything else is on as-needed basis. But birthdays… yes, birthdays are different.
We love our kid’s birthdays. While our own birthdays seem more like state of the union address rather than celebrations now, our baby’s birthdays are awesome chances to be children again, to have fun and yes, not afraid to admit here, to go all out on spoiling. And that means, the Kid gets to choose the party theme, and unless its something unrealistic, like Bipartisan Immigration Reform party, we are happy to oblige.
