One very nice thing about being an only child was…the birthday parties!
I’ve heard in multiple-child families that extravagant birthday parties are often confined to the “big” birthdays. Each family, of course, has different qualifications on what a “big” birthday is – 10, 12, 13, 16, 18, etc.
But as an only child, I enjoyed pretty nice birthday parties just about every year.
I especially remember my Sweet Sixteen where my parents paid for me and all my friends and to go see a live production of Oklahoma! Afterwards, we had a huge meal at the now-defunct Cheddar’s. It must have cost them a mint, but I loved every minute of it.
Today, my friend Alice blogged about a unique child’s birthday party she attended. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to see some folks really are “getting it right.”
