Today is Lil Missy's birthday party! I can't believe she will be turning 8 next week. Where has time gone? They years have just flown by.
I feel so bad that her party won't be as elaborate as some of her friends. I've seen how parents have gone all out for their childs birthday's this year and I kind of feel like a failure as a parent because I won't be giving her an elaborate party.
Again this year, we are having it at the local park. Cupcakes, drinks, small party favors, and decorating photo frames is what we are doing. I just didn't have the money to go all out again this year.
I realize I shouldn't compare myself to other parents but I do and it frustrates me that I can't do for our daughter what other parents have done for their kids.
My friend has a portable printer so she is going to print a picture out of Lil Missy with each of their friends to put in their photo frame as a take home favor. I thought everyone would like that. Especially since most of the kids coming would be girls. (The only boys are cousins and I don't really think they will care.)
