And I would like to thank the Academy...

So, my first-born's birthday is in two weeks and guess which mother of the year hasn't planned a party for her yet?

So I guess the top of my to-do list for today should be to call Chick-fil-a or Chuck E. Cheese to reserve a party slot. (Note to self: party favors = hand sanitizer!)

And since it isn't really a party without guests, I should race to Walmart, buy some fill-in-the-blank invites (because there is no time for printing) and get them in the mail ASAP. All the while sending up prayers that all of her friends don't already have plans!

But first, I should go practice my acceptance speech...

Good luck getting it all done.

We celebrated Izzy's 2nd birthday 2 months later...she got to celebrate at school, and since her birthday was the day we came home from the hospital, I wasn't willing to do anything.

Well at least you remembered 2 weeks before the big day and not 2 days before. I bet you can pull something together in 2 weeks. I totally have faith in you :)

Don't worry! Wether it's planned for months in advance, or at the last minute, it won't make a difference to her! As long as she has fun with her family and friends, you will have created great memories!

haha. Yep, that's pretty much the reason why Jack's June 4th birthday will actually be celebrated on June 27th! lol

I think planning birthday parties is one of my least favorite parts of being a mom.

We had Albany's all planned out this year, but because of the weather we didn't get to have the party we planned. Instead we just had one at the house and people just dropped by during the day.

Aw, don't be too hard on yourself -- you just had a baby! She will be happy to have a special party just for her no matter what you do.

It will be great any way! I know you always make your kiddos feel special and Libby will love it.

You will make it awesome! I know it. I'm the same way with planning anything. If something doesn't happen within the next 48 hours, it's not a priority.

Last year, I sent e-vites to everyone on my daughter's party list!

Don't feel bad. It happens to all of us at some point.

I can even one up Emily about Jack's party being 3 weeks late. Year before last, neither one of my girls even had a birthday party. Nice, huh? Their birthdays are Dec. 6th and 12th. Yep, 6 days apart AND smack dab in between Thanksgiving and Christmas. And it really wasn't a big deal to them missing that year.

Don't be so hard on yourself, you do what you can because (a) it will be fine and (b) they don't even remember much at that age!
