Only in America do people celebrate their child's third birthday at a venue and not at home. I grew up with small birthday parties at home,"boring" games like "Hit the pot" and a traditional birthday cake. (Have no clue what "Hit the pot" is? Read more about it here.) But I loved it.
My child gets invitations to iJump and McWane Science Center. Parties cost at least $250 or more and you HAVE to invite all kids from preschool.
Last Saturday we were at iJump: 90 minutes of jumping, pizza, pink cupcakes, ice cream, all served by a hostess. Sophie loved it and screamed: "MOM, I want a party."
Yeah... I guess I need to find a venue for her third birthday in May. Or I will simply organize a traditional European party.
