It was recently my youngest’s first birthday, I don’t know if you’re like me or whether it varies from culture to culture but I felt I had to throw a big party for this auspicious occasion. I had previously thrown a big party for my first boy, I’m not sure whether I wanted to do the same again or whether I felt obliged to throw a big party because I had already done so before.
- hire an empty hall,
- lay it out,
- decorate it,
- set the food up and
- then a few hours later tidy the whole thing away,
- we even all the various cakes and goodie bags ourselves.
I recently went to one party and even managed to sneak in a frame of pool whilst holding my baby in one arm.
