Four kids. Four different food preferences. Today I’m sharing my process for learning my baby’s food preferences at every stage while maintaining nutritional value, over at Today’s Parent!
My baby turned one this month. I’m not crying, YOU’RE crying. Ok, I lied, I’m definitely crying. I cannot believe I hosted my very last, first birthday party.
If you’ve been following me for awhile then you already know that I love to plan themed birthday parties for my kids, but I’m especially *extra* when it comes to their first birthday. I figure if I get nothing else right as a parent, at least each one of my kids will be able to say, “I did have a pretty amazing first birthday party, though!” Lol.
I can hardly believe that my first-born turned EIGHT this August. I know it’s so cliche, but it truly does go SO FAST! I’ve always loved celebrating my kids’ birthdays, despite the fact that they are a bit bittersweet as well, recognizing that my little ones are getting older. However, my creative side loves to prep and plan each party to suite the interests of each individual child, and together we have a lot of fun with it!
I would say my party-planning style is 2-parts-DIY, 1-Part-Buy! I really do love a good DIY, and I often find myself thinking, “I can make that”, when I see an idea I find particularly inspiring. However, as a mom of four, sometimes it is just easier to pick-up the things I need – especially if I don’t have to compromise the quality of the theme in the process 😉 So, all that to say, I really do believe that anyone could replicate any of the parties I’ve thrown, whatever your party-planning style may be!
