Birthday Blessing

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.”

Check it out!

Thanks! I love birthday parties, by the way. The thing about this one too was that it was really, really fun! I'd love to get a group together sometime and go back...

Oh, and all your friends to Oklahoma and to dinner sounds like a blast!

Well, as your Mom, I really enjoyed that birthday party too!

As always I love, love plays.

What should we do for your 30th?
