Today, is my youngest son's tenth birthday. He is growing up so fast. I honestly don't like birthday's anymore. It's hard to explain. It's not that I don't want to celebrate it. It's just that I am not into spending a weeks worth of a paycheck over it. If money wasn't an issue then I don't see a problem with it.
Today, we are taking a cupcake cake to his tutoring club. He will get a gift from us, but no party. I don't think he likes it, but agreed that we can go to Nickel World on a different day, but it's not a party. I hope we can have a good day. We have a school conference, but while we are at the school, my friend Rachel is taking him to have some ice cream. So, he should be spoiled. Ice cream and then cake and then presents. We can have a good time without the fuss of a party right?

Sure you can! Hah I just happened to be reading your blog when your new post popped up. And...it's my birthday too ; )

Can you think of something free to do with your son that he'd be real surprised to get to do? Like, sleep with his clothes on, or not brush his teeth for this one night, or stay up an hour later..or maybe something that he's til now been "too young" to do like watch a specific tv show or open a fb account (monitored of course!)

Anyway, hope you have a good day!

Good for you! And your son doesn't sound upset at all. So, good for him for being mature. We just had a big party for our 5 year olds and it took every ounce of energy and a ton of money to have it. No more for those two for the next 5 years.

You can have a great birthday without a party. Kids parties can certainly add up. We are in the middle of planning our daughters party and every time I think abut the cost I debate cancelling it. But since we are home schooling her this year I think its important for her to get the social interaction with her former classmates and friends.

Happy Birthday to your son.
