My beautiful daughter has a birthday on Dec. 18, that's painfully close to Christmas. I was wondering if maybe a small get together around the birthday then a little more of a blowout for her half birthday would be better. I was thinking there would be a chance to get her gifts that she would be more interested in (ie. pool pass, or 6 flags pass) Getting these things then having to stash them away for 5-6 months doesn't seem like they would be as much fun as getting them for a half birthday. Plus, this past birthday/Christmas I couldn't think of 1 more thing to tell people to get her, by the time I found the extra time to go shopping I found that I had given all my ideas away to everyone else.
What does everyone think about this? Is this a form of punishment for a birthday she can't help or is it a good idea to spread it out? I'm totally open to opinions.
