Oh Lol's, what a cracker!
Look if I ever manage to make a half decent cake I'll be boasting my **** off, because it will make up for the completely sh1tty catastrophes or bakery cakes I've produced in shame every other year!
Nope no boasting, only me saying I make sucky cakes .... and I did actually say I DON'T think I'm a better mum? Meh some just want a reason to have a fight, and clearly bday cakes have become a contentious issue!
I had a big first birthday last year for my daughter and this year I will be having another big party... My mother was never one to throw big parties for us and I wish she did, which is why I do it for my princess
Should I link to my FB album of mum made birthday cakes now? Or would that be revolting and needy?
I don't understand the issue even if someone was proud of their achievements, isn't it normal to show creative things off? I think sadly often it's only not ok to be proud if said person also happens to be a mother (who should be spending every waking moment with her child and not having you know hobbies and fun stuff).
If you have a talent flaunt it I say, so if you can make an awesome cake you should brag about it and show pics!
As for the cost of parties, I do not add up how much we spend every second year (time for a party this year and I doubt that I will get any change from $1,000) and I throw the party that my son wants and that I can afford.
I am sure that I have been judged in the past but meh I do it because I can and want to.
I have never judged another party for a child, I have often judged an adults party though, but never a kids party or the parent throwing it.
