Re: s/o: You got me excited to skip the birthday party
We don't do a big party for first birthdays, but we do do a party. It's just grandparents, and aunts/uncles. Presents are in bags and my boys at 1 loved taking the paper off the top and looking inside. Neither one of them were intersted in the cake, but wasn't a big deal. Take a few pics and then everyone else starts eating cake. I do think, for my family atleast, it's nice to celebrate the birth day no matter what age the child is. We do do bigger parties as they age because they have friends and family is still invited.
