>The birthday season is settling over the Bean household with our first parties this week. This year, we will be having a super fun party for the TwinBeans that is Toy Story and Mulan. Somehow I have a feeling this will be more like the parallel play that the kids engaged in when small than the interactive play they engage in now. We’ll likely end up with two parties running side by side. However, they insisted they wanted to celebrate on the same day ;).
This year we don’t expect any people who are confused about why the party invitation for the birthday boy or girl they got was different from the new mom they’ve just met (has happened more than once in the past). We’re chilling out and doing a smaller at-home party this year with good friends from school and outside. We’ll see what the kids think of it as it’s been a few years since we took this approach. As for me, I’m excited (and exhausted) just thinking of it. I’ll be posting the cake pictures once they’re made…
