all these posts about parties have made me think about the disagreement DH and I are having about DD's birthday in September.
She has started daycare 2 days a week and has made some little friends, plus she has 4 friends from assorted sources (like DS's friends little brothers and sisters).
I want to just have a little party at her gymnastics centre (they do cheap parties on a Sunday and they are fab) with her friends...no big deal. I want it simple and easy....cake and a little bit of party food/fruit.
DH wants to invite all of his family/friends on top of that.
Now, there is a room that we can use at the gym to do cake and stuff...but nothing else for people to do.
DO you have to invite extended family to every birthday party?? I never did with DS and it ****s me that all these people who we rarely see need to come along...all they will end up doing is sitting around.
