Baby boy is no longer a baby as we celebrated his fifth birthday right before Halloween.
Can’t believe it’s been five years of Kai and I wouldn’t have it any other way. He came into our lives when we needed some joy and a little bit of chaos trust he never disappoints.
When I found out I was pregnant I was a little nervous but resolved in knowing this would be my last pregnancy. I don’t know guys some people love being pregnant..I am not one of those people. From then to now with the rambunctious kid, I have on my hands. I’m still ok with that choice(haha)
After planning his sister’s 5th birthday party and his first I knew I was a pro when it came time to planning his… boy was I wrong.
I made up my mind years ago that every birthday did not need a big celebration. Not because my kids don’t deserve to be celebrated but because then where is the fun? So we celebrate big milestones, like the first birthday, five, ten, sweet 16, you get the point. For my daughter’s fifth birthday her grandparents rented unicorn ponies. She had an absolute blast! So I knew I had to do something great. Only downside? It’s fall y’all.
Poor kiddo was born right in the middle of fall festivals, trunk o’ treat, backyard bashes, and football season. So it was hard to find something extraordinary to do. But we made do with what we could. So my tip to all the parents out there with kids born in October all I can say is to plan it early. Pick a theme and stick with it so you can order that special cake, get that entertainment for the party, and rent that bounce house!
For my son, we managed to find a big bounce house with a slide, and a pinata, and my mom found all the Antonio (Encanto) themed party supplies to keep our theme going. I created a balloon arch, and the food papaw and grandma made kept all the adults full while the kids munch on pizza.
I still can believe he’s five but don’t worry by the time we hit ten. I’ll have it all planned out. Always remember it doesn’t have to be big and extravagant it just has to be special for them.
