In fact, JD has had a party every weekend (both Sat and Sun) this entire month. This weekend we have Lily’s Little Mermaid party and Addison’s Monster Mini-Golf party.
Theme parties, party venues, and all the trimmings are a big deal around these parts. JD has been having kiddy parties since he turned 2. Back then, I threw him a low-key bash at a local park.
When he turned 3, I opted for a fun house venue—there was a trampoline, rides, play areas, and a big crawl structure. We celebrated the big 4 at a bounce house venue. This year we partied at the gym where JD studies karate. Chop!
I’ve spent nearly $4,000 bucks on parties, counting favors, cakes, family dinners, school party snacks, and venues over the past 5 years. This may sound crazy, but every other parent I know parties the same way.
However, I think I need to reel it in. I’m thinking kid party cutoff at … 8? 10? Tell me your thoughts.
As I sit down to wrap 2 gifts for this weekends’ parties, have a look at some recent extravaganzas we’ve been too. Ponies, piggy cupcakes, photo print cakes—oh yeah, we party hard. #JerseySTRONG

Do you give your child a kiddy party? Do you send in treats to school? What is the party scene like in your area? (JD turns 6 in August. He wants a bowling party.) Share! XOXO
