.....by why do we have to throw our kids birthday parties??? I mean it's so much work, the cleaning the preparations and then the money you have to spend in order to have a "Cool" party!!! Why can't our kids be happy with having treats at school with their classmates???
I know it sounds really bad to be complaining about this but I am so not a good party giver. Okay maybe I'm not that bad, but I don't really enjoy it. I worry and stress out about getting the house clean enough and clean on time. Then I worry that the other kiddos and parents are going to think that our party, or even house, is...well...below par. I've always had a hard time not worrying about what other people think of me, my clothes, house, car, and anything else about me. So to throw a party and not have the money to do one of those play places that can cost hundreds of dollars to rent makes me feel poor.
I know I shouldn't care about what other people think, just as long as my kiddos are happy with their party, but can't help but wonder what they are really thinking. I mean do they see the stress and concern on my face and decide to tell me that everything is great when it's not??? Or do they really mean it?
See I can't even not worry about what my own kiddos will think??? I'm a mess. UGH!!! And of course here I am sitting at my computer complaining about stressing about cleaning my house for a birthday party when the party I'm currently worrying about is this Saturday and I still have so much preparation and cleaning to do for it!!! Oy vey....I guess maybe I should just drag my procrastinating butt off of this computer and get some stuff done before I have to leave the house to go pick up Tink from kindergarten. Then maybe I can stress just a little bit less.....maybe but I doubt it....... ;)
