Re: s/o: You got me excited to skip the birthday party
We like doing birthday parties. It's important to me to spend special time with my kids on their birthdays, so I understand it;s important to others in the family too. I know I'd be bummed out if I could see my neices or nephews for their birthdays, in a setting that was meant for celebrating their birthdays. It's more than a tradition to me.
For those in the family that feel it's important, I'd at least plan a time to meet everyone somewhere, whether thats Chickfila for lunch, or monkey joes on the weekend, or heck just the park. I would give everyone a chance to see him for his bday
