Someone asked if I'd started planning Sam's fourth birthday party when it hit me...
I should be planning two birthday parties.
I should be complaining about having two children with birthdays too close together to do them both justice in the party department.
I should be saying things like, "I'm waiting to plan Sam's birthday until after I see how Alex's goes."
I should be printing up cute little invitations that fit in with a theme suitable for a first birthday, but not repeating the Tigger theme I used for Sam.
I should be thinking about guest lists and menus and cakes.
I should be weighing whether to have just family, or just friends, or some combination of both.
I should be worrying about how much money two birthday celebrations is going to cost us.
I should...I should...I should...
