So, I am feeling like a total LOSER mom...

tonight. "Why?" you might ask -- well, let me tell you why.

Hunter's 10th birthday is tomorrow and Addy's 6th birthday is on Saturday and for the first time in my children's life, I have not planned a "real" birthday party for them. I usually go all out with made-by-hand invites, some fun handmade item for the kids to take home, tons of yummy food and all out splendor. This year I am at a loss. Finding friends has not come easy for Hunter so I don't want to "push" the issue of having a large party if it will stress him out about who to invite. So then I'm thinking "I can't have a huge party with all Addy's new girlfriends just 5 days after Hunter's birthday. It's just no fair to Hunter." So, what should I do? How can I make his day special tomorrow? I've asked him but he says, "I don't know." His one request was to get some Dual Master cards and go to Chick-fil-A. So, is that it? Will that be his big hoop-la for turning 10? Man, Oh Man -- I just feel sad about it.

Does Hunter have 1 or 2 good friends that he can invite over and you can take them out to a movie and to his favorite restaurant or place and just have a fun night? Broc was just invited to a party like that where the boys mom wanted to do something small, and he had a great time. Tell Hunter that if Broc were there he would love to hang out with him :)

Doing a big party isn't required for a great birthday. You can still get him a gift that he wants, eat what he wants and then do something he wants. It will be a great day. Lots of times I give my big guys the option-you can have the party or the money that would pay for the party.
