23rd January 2014 – Gio Turns One
I had read somewhere that generally, for small children, the number of children to invite to a birthday party should be the child’s age plus one. So the plan was to invite the two children from the block who Gio usually sees and plays with. The guest list then extended to our Marriage Enrichment Group (who all have children born between July 2012 and August 2013) then it included all the children in our block.
Then it seems my wife just kept stretching the guest list as days went by until it had maybe 30 adults! To further complicate matters, she wanted the birthday celebrated on the actual date of birth, a Thursday, and not moved to a more convenient Saturday, for example.
