what NOT to do for the 4-year-old’s party:

  • don’t make a rule that she can invite only 4 kids because she is 4
  • don’t secretly rejoice in your introverted heart that your extroverted kid decided to invite only her 3 best friends. At least two will be on vacation or sick (it IS January after all).
  • don’t have a baby in January (see above)
  • don’t panic at the thought of your child sitting at Chick-Fil-A surrounded by goodie bags, balloons and ONE guest
  • don’t invite kids your child hasn’t seen in months the day before the party because of the above.  Awkward.
  • don’t forget to charge the camera battery
  • don’t assume that Chick-Fil-A will have a working helium tank.  Do assume they will spend the entire party blowing up balloons with their own lungs.
  • don’t forget that she does not care how much money the party cost or how many kids show up.  She’s FOUR.  Not 14.  Stop projecting your personal phobias.
  • don’t forget to stop freaking out and enjoy yourself… hey!  there are cupcakes!
