What do you do for a birthday party when you don't have any kids to invite? No one from DC ever invites us to their parties, I guess its just not done in this group and I don't know any of the other parents anyway so that would be weird. None of our friends have kids their age (they are either infants...or preteen). I have a little family in town but its my recently divorced parents, my grandmother and my teenage sister. (everyone could get along well enough for cake and ice cream...but things would get tense after a couple hours in the same place). We have avoided this situation in the past by taking them to Disney for 1st birthday and we ended up at Chuckey Cheese with my mom last year (so lame...but we had just moved back to town from being 17 hours away the day before their birthday).
We've tried getting into gymnastics so they could meet other kids their age but my kids hated it so we quit. I'm going to try to get into a Kindermusik class soon and see how that goes...mostly b/c they do birthday parties and I really just want my kids to finally have a regular little kid party with presents and games and everything.
Any other ideas?
