To plan or not to plan a birthday

Even if your kids don’t remember their first birthday party, if it matters to you that you will remember it, you don’t have to toss out the opportunity. 

  • Set yourself up for what will decrease your stress level. 

  • Determine your core values and why you’re having a party. What’s your intention for the event and align the to-do’s with that. 

  • Ask for help! It’s ok to have support and help. 

  • Know yourself and give yourself an adequate amount of time based on who you are. 

  • Accept what works for your family and prioritize that over what other people do.

  • You don’t have to do anything! Whatever works for your family:)
