Children love birthday parties. They love playing the fun party games. They love singing “Happy Birthday” to the guest of honor prior to digging into the cake. They even love giving presents and watching the honoree open them all up in a flurry of packaging.
But most of all, kids love playing in the bounce house rental. The few hours they can play in the bounce house, jumping around with their friends as they defy gravity and have the time of their life are some of the most memorable moments of their young lives.
Parents and Birthdays
Most of the time, parents take a different approach to birthdays. For one thing, they are a lot of work.
There’s all the invitations to write and send out, the menu to plan, the games to coordinate, and the help from family and friends to recruit. Then there’s the expense: Throwing a birthday party for your child isn’t cheap, especially if you want to do it right.
But throwing your child’s birthday party doesn’t have to be all work and no play for moms and dads. You can and should enjoy the birthday party nearly as much as your child. After all, it will create lifelong memories for you, as well.
How to Enjoy the Party
One way to get more out of your child’s birthday is to share the workload. Get other family members and friends to help you with the party planning and setup, rather than trying to do everything on your own.
Invite a few of your own close friends to join in on the fun so you will have someone to talk to during the party — and to help you clean up afterward. Extra sets of eyes are always helpful when supervising a large group of children.
Most of all, take some time to appreciate the experience. You only get a handful of birthday parties when your children are young enough to fully enjoy them. Take the time to make the most of it!
