Are You Having A Big First Birthday Party?


birthday cupcake Fuzz’s first birthday is coming soon! It’s about time I started planning his first birthday party, which means I should really procrastinate another two weeks and then panic the entire week before.

I remember going to a first birthday party of my mom’s friend’s daughter when I was a teenager. It was at her house, but it was a full catered affair with no fewer than fifty people. My mom’s friend looked gorgeous and radiant holding her one-year-old. She seemed to be having a great time. That was when I realized: First Birthday parties are totally about the parents. That’s totally awesome! It’s celebration of making it through the first year of your baby’s life! I was so down with this concept. It’s why I decided to have children, actually. Just kidding, folks.

Anyway, if you know me at all, planning a great big party with lots of important details is not my forte, neither is planning any small affair. My husband planned most of our wedding, even though I obsessed about the flowers–which ended up arriving dead. That goes to show you what obsessing can do.
