Do any of you plan combined parties? Meaning both sides of families doing one party for the kids rather than having Mom's party and Dad's party? I decided this past year that I just can't emotionally do combined parties because I spend the entire party trying to keep food down (because he makes me sick!)
The main decision basically stemmed from the fact that Step Mom asked if she could help 5 months before actualy birthday and I said I'd get back to her. Then, about 4 weeks later, I get an email saying when and where the party would happen. It's happening on a weekend that I have to work all week, so I decided to just throw my own.
Now, dad is saying that it would be SOO confusing for my son-to throw 2 different parties. What do you think?
