Planning a Birthday Party

So how strange is it that I am disappointed with the three year old's theme choice for his birthday party? One the one hand, he had so much fun last year that he apparently wants to do the same thing again but on the other hand, boring!! I had in mind a cool Toy Story party complete with puppet show but my three year old (who is obsessed with all things Toy Story - his Christmas list is dominated by different characters) said very emphatically he does not want a Toy Story birthday party. He wanted the same Car theme as last year with the bouncy house. Let it not be said that I don't give my kids what they want. So out went the invitations this morning, we went with a Speed Racer theme, which he was fine with and recycling the entertainment from last year. Meanwhile, the six year old has already picked out a theme and the gift he wants for next September. Yeah, cause he plans ahead like that.

No, this happened to me too. I was disappointed that my 4 year old wanted Mickey Mouse again. But, at the last minute, I talked him out of it because I'm a jerk like that.

I let my oldest think she is the one making the decisions but really I trick her into what I think would be fun my telling her all the things we could do with it lol

Maybe we should throw you a Toy Story party.

I love Toy Story too! I hate when the kids pick something I don't want to do!
