Re: Some toddler birthday etiquette questions

I think you are totally over thinking it and might overextend yourself. Just decline the 2 parties you kinda want to decline, RSVP yes to the one you really want to go to and thank everyone for inviting you. As for how much to spend, I would shop sale racks and try to get a $20ish gift for half of off or something or buy something at Ross or TJ Max. Don't spend $40 or $50 just because someone else bought your child an expensive gift. It is a kids birthday party, not a wedding. It is really not a big deal. Don't sweat it! Just have fun. Amongst my group of good friends we still have to decline parties because I swear from September until December there is like one or two a weekend it is nuts! Everyone understands and nobody gets mad if you don't come.
Surfing, gardening, yoga loving mom, and wife to an amazing man!
