So each year I've been trying to make the day special for him and pretty much failing miserably. Actually, for his first birthday we didn't do anything. I figured since he was just one I could get away with it. Then on his second birthday, I decided I would have a party a couple of weeks after his birthday in January. I thought it would be great since the holiday rush would be over and people would be excited for something fun to do. What I hadn't counted on was the massive snowstorm we would receive that day and no one would be able to make it. So then last year for his third birthday I decided to do a small play date on his actual birthday. I have a few teacher friends (who would be on vacation) so I invited them over with their children for a low key but fun party. Although, I hadn't planned on more than half of them having children come down with the stomach bug and/or pneumonia.
So this year WAS IT - I was going to (yet again) try something else and I was going to rock it (or so I hoped!). So we had an early birthday party at Kidz Wurld this morning for Henry with his friends. I even let Isabelle play hooky from school today so that she could come, too. I am so happy to report that it was a total success. The morning was full of lots of friends, lots of bouncing, lots of toys, and lots of smiles. Henry was then excited to come home and open his presents and then promptly passed out on the couch. A great day!
