When my daughter turned one I admit I went a little all out with it(all together dropped $650) and as a single young mom it was hard to pull off. I justified it as being my first baby's first birthday so I had a little right to get crazy with it. Now for her second party me and my husband are trying to shoot right in the middle of the crappy around the house type party and the craziness I did last year.
I'm expecting my second daughter a month before her birthday so we'll have more than one kid to think about and really don't have the money to blow like I did with my oldest. I've settled for WalMart cake, cheap bulk food while still good, and $60 for presents but my husband says house decorations are a waste of money. Am I trying too hard or am I right in wanting a nice looking party?
