This year I decided to do something a little different. Something that was either going to make me seem like the biggest horses ass or get me pinned. I decided to not have a birthday party for Leyton in May. Instead, I would have him a teeth party. You see, all of his teeth are in now and if you have followed along at all then teething for Leyton has been MISERABLE. I wanted to celebrate his teeth! I wanted to have all of his friends together to play with no party expectations.
Guess what? It was a blast! It was so fun to have a play date and have the parents together to bull shit without singing of Happy Birthday, without stopping to open gifts. It was just a party that flowed along on it's natural course.
We played Pin the Bowtie on the Tooth, Ana Apples made a custom shirt and my friend Beth made a cake.
I also put out a craft for each person to make their own smile. It was wonderful! I have decided that while I may have more birthday parties in the future, I also will find time to celebrate the other milestones.
Peepee on the potty party anyone??
