What a horrible mother I am; but I do have my excuses: 1. his birthday party was rescheduled a couple of times do to his having strep throat 2. his birthday is in December when there are five million other things going on, and 3. I was in the midst of putting together a ton of Christmas cards for my clients – I was amazed I even got mine out this year.
But those are all just excuses. Truth is, I just completely forgot to do one. Better late than never though…
Jack really wanted to have a Monster’s vs. Aliens birthday party this year. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything like that in the 10 different party stores I went in to. I could have ordered it, but again, I’m a horrible mother and procrastinated and just did not have the time to get everything in without paying a small fortune in express shipping and handling fees.
Overall, despite Jack’s still being a little puny, despite it not being a Monster’s vs. Aliens birthday party, Jack still had a wonderful time. It’s a toss up as to whether he enjoyed his gifts more or seeing so many friends and family members at his house to celebrate his special day. Oh who am I kidding? The boy is five – of course he enjoyed his gifts more : )
