This year, for the first time, the boys' birthday parties are not in exact proximity to their birthdays.
In fact, David's birthday party will be a few days before his birthday.
And Sam's will be 13 days after his.
We've had all sorts of cool parties...
A car-racing party
A monster-truck party
A secret agent/spy party
A Dora the Explorer party
Dragons & Dinosaurs party
even an out-of-the-house party
(and of course, B.B. (before blogging) there were some great parties too - a Lego party, a superhero party, a Lego party, a balloon party...and probably some others that I can't remember!)
But the drama of parties that are not in direct proximity to the birthdays themselves?
How do you handle the "oy vey" of trying to explain a birthday day and a party day...!?
