Parties.. too much fuss?
I recently read a blog post about a Mom throwing a 5th Birthday party for her daughter and proclaiming how it was the most stressful thing she had ever planned in her life.... (insert crickets)
I thought to myself a few things...
1 it shouldn't BE stressful, Birthdays are celebrations, and you lady, are definitely not making what is important a priority
2 they are kids... why fuss about making each detail PERFECT.. they are kids! I doubt your husband notices the fresh flowers in your house.. how do you expect kids to appreciate the unicorn confetti on the table?
3 I sometimes think Moms want to feel stressed or like they are worked too hard.. maybe it's not true.. but it doesn't make you a better Mom if you are the MOST stressed out one w/ everything on your plate
4 Less is more most times.. in my eyes at least - people get caught up in hype and I think memories will create themselves.. with or without the unicorn confetti
What do you gals think? Do you think in the world of Pinterest and making things look picture perfect that Moms get caught up in it all? Forgetting the real point to most the things they are planning?
