DS is teething and thinks mommy needs to hold him for naps....so I am trying to kill 2hrs in this rocking chair.
Anyways, I was lurking SAHM board and someone posted a thread about how much people would spend on a bday party.
Her kid is turning 4 and she is planning on spending around 400 not including a gift for the kid. Most of the responses have been that it seems like a reasonable amount and they would/are spending similar amounts on bday parties.
I am floored! This seems so over the top to me to spend that amount of money EVERY year on a kid's party.
Don't get me wrong we are going all out for the First Birthday and when all is said and done probably pushing 350ish dollars. But we are inviting all our aunts, uncles, cosins on both sides of the family totaling a 150ish total people. [our families are huge]
After this year we plan to do low key cake and icecream parties with just grandparents and our siblings and their kids which will most likely not even cost 50.
What do you all think? Is 400 parties EVERY year crazy cakes to anyone else?
