Let's cute the crap.. and kiss the goodie bags goodbye!
Amen to this I say.. Amen!!
This hilarious article is actually just a rant about how OVER goodie bags the author is.. and to be honest? I COULDN'T AGREE MORE.
My favorite line of hers might be..
"I don't want to get them. And I don't want to give them.."
Honestly.. I am totally a "less is more" type person.. I don't love the fluff, or doing things JUST BECAUSE it's the way it's always been, etc.. I think excess is too much sometimes.. so this goodie bags post.. I love. I think we already have too much STUFF, kids get so much STUFF, we have so much STUFF we practically don't know where to STUFF our STUFF.. is anyone else with me that we don't need more STUFF? I think it's fine to teach a kid that you go to a birthday party for fun, to celebrate the birthday kiddo.. and you get food, play, etc.. but you don't always have to GET something in return!
Mamas.. weigh in.. if you disagree it's fine.. just don't give Monroe a goodie bag :) haha
And, believe it or not, my daughter doesn't like candy.
I like Christina's idea of thank you notes. They could possibly put a lollipop in there or something. Besides, the kids usually have games, food, ice cream and cake. A goody bag with candy is too much sugar (because the kids go home after that)! Um, on second thought, scratch the lollipop idea.
