My son will be turning 3 in January, and I don't know whether or not we should have a party for him. We moved approximately 50 miles earlier this year and we don't really know anyone around here. We have been with the same playgroup since he was 9 months old, so he's gotten to know a few of the kids there (as I have gotten to know some of the moms as well). We still see them regularly as I promised we'd make at least one of their playdates each week.
The ones we are closest to - maybe 5 or 6 of the kids/moms - would travel close to where we are for a party. We don't really have family nearby either, at least none that are close by who have young kids, so if I do a party, it will be very small. Should I bother? Really, if I could let the kids run and play, then have food and cake, that would be great. Some indoor playgrounds charge around $500 (and up) for a 2-hour private party. Is it worth it?
