Last weekend Rhys was invited to a birthday party - so off we went expecting pin the tail on the donkey, balloons, jelly and icecream - you know the sort of stuff i mean.
What did we actually get?  30 + kids, a full blown disco (including entertainer), party games included an x-factor dance competition and huge buffet lunch that could easily have fed a small third world country ...
... and this child is ONLY 4!
God knows how much this all cost (i didnt dare ask the birthday boys mam) but i'm thinking that if she had change from £500 she was probably doing well.

Just to top it all off when i got talking to some of the parents with older kids it turns out that this particular party is THE one to have at the mo.  Apparently 'everyone is doing it'.    OMG these are small children!!  What are they going to want/expect when they get to be teenagers?!!

Well next Tuesday Rhys is 4.  We are not having a big disco, and we are not spending a fortune.  We are having pass the parcel, blue-tac the tail on the donkey (pins and 4 year olds are not a good combination), jelly and ice-cream and homemade birthday cake with candles.  Do we think that Rhys is notice the difference?  Of course not - he is only 4 - all he wants is a bit of fun and some presents to unwrap.
I hope to goodness that kids in Oz prefer good old fashioned parties - i know i do.

No how you feel, we didn't bother with a party last year, as we could not compete with the limo party! that my son was invited to.
Hope he has a lovley birthday.
