For months, I have been planning to have this big Superhero Bash for my son’s 6th Birthday Party. I’ve been pinning lots of super cute ideas over on my Kid’s Birthday Parties Pinterest Board and had plans to rent a room, have an ice cream sundae bar and lots of games for all of his friends. I started making plans to invite his entire class – 24 kids! – and making lists of what games to play with that would be superhero themed. When I told Hayden about the party idea, I thought he’d be so excited. Nope. He wanted a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese like some of his friends had and he only wanted 8 classmates coming. I tried to convince him otherwise. I showed him the pictures that I had found on Pinterest. I was almost close to begging. And then wait. Was I really trying to convince my son to let me spend hundreds of dollars and hours of time on a party when he just wanted one at a place with LESS kids AND they took care of everything for me? Am I crazy?!
So I took a step back and agreed to the simple Chuck E. Cheese party. I even made it simpler for me by sending out evite invitations to family and classmates. So now, I’m a lot less stressed and I’ll be able to enjoy his party a bit more. But I’m mourning the fact of my plans for his big party, so I’m now sharing here my imaginary plans for his big Superhero Birthday party – although fingers crossed for his 7th birthday!
