  • I myself wouldn't do it. I think they deserve to have their own special days since they are not twins. But I guess it wouldn't be that bad since they're still young.

  • I think that's always great - you can do a nicer party that way and the kids won't mind. A cake suggestion might be one for the guests - half his and half hers... and for the birthday boy and girl - their own small cake decorated special for them.

    Good luck!

  • when my kids were younger i did that, now they want their own. their b-days fall on 16th of july and aug 1st. so i think it's ok while they are still young, do it until they start to complain about it.

  • I always have done my kids parties together. They are 8 and 3. One is May 21st the other is May 25th. They don't mind. My sister and I share a birthday, it's on the same day and I never minded as a child. Auctually I think it made us closer, we had that special "we share a birthday' bond.

  • When they are young, I would definately do a party together. As they get older they may want their own day (with their own friends or with mom and dad).  Birthday themes, ideas, gifts, games, supplies   http://www.cjkidz.com/Birthday%20Resource%20Page.html
