Having a third child and being on the dole just has a way of scaling down your lifestyle a bit if you know what I mean. But, I think it's the best decision after all. The way I justify it is: they both love the same cartoon characters and activities which makes it easy for the theme(s) of the party. They also share a lot of the same friends or their friends have siblings with similar ages. Also, their birthdays are only 2 months apart, so it's not that big of a deal. And the biggest reason: IT SAVES ME MONEY!
We've decided to have it at the YMCA pool (which is actually super nice compared to most community pools I know.) We'll bring food, drinks, decorations, cake, goodie bags and they will coordinate the kids activities such as swimming and sand volleyball and humungous bubble blowing. I am not sure yet how that will all pan out. I hope we can play a little music though and drink some
The oldest chickadee has decided she wants a Tangled/Rapunzel theme
and the littlest chickadee wants a My Little Pony theme.
So I need to combine the two themes and make it unique and special to each of them. I think getting them to agree on one theme to share might be asking too much, but I'll try proposing it to them one more time. Do you have any suggestions on how to blend these two themes and on pulling off a joint birthday to make each girl feel special?
