I know it's literally 9 months away but I worry about stuff like this. Especially since I have 5 kids- & 4 of them (including DS) have birthdays in the spring.
End of school is May 30th. DS's last day will probably be a week or 2 before that with graduation either the last week of May or 1st week of June.
10yo & 4yo DSs have birthdays the 27th & 28th of May. I also have a DD who has a birthday beginning of March.
Oldest DS's birthday is at the beginning of April. He will be 18 then. I was thinking a surprise double party- birthday & graduation combo. The more I think about it the less I like the idea- that IMO is almost like having your birthday close to Christmas.
But would having a graduation party in early May be tacky?
The other problem I have is my ex has a DS who has a birthday beginning of May that I have to work around. This boy isn't my DS's half brother but he is my younger kids' half brother. And my ex was like a father figure to my DS for a few years. And as long as I'm at my current job I am looking at getting paid the 9th of May (weekend of ex's son's bday) & the weekend before my younger sons' bdays.
Good gravy I have to be worrying about nothing right??? I mean if I plan I could have DS's grad party the weekend between those dates. But that's a lot on my plate party-wise 2 weekends in a row. Maybe I'll just scale back & not have full blown parties for my bday boys?
