May be a long post. But I cannot stop writing after reading this.
You wont believe what I am saying. My collegue who's 75 yrs old , american told me how he's teaching the kids about the value of money. If they ask for something , he'll tell he's not earning great to get that immediately, But if he works harder he can get it and they have to help them. They'll help him in doing all the

Post thought: Hubby dear and I decided that we'll throw parties when the kids are old enough and want one for their birthday. Otherwise we're not joining the herd. But it helps to live in boring Chennai to make such decisions:)

I think I'm from stone age or something. The brat's b'day fell on your brat's. I didn't even host a party, because I was lazy. Of course, the routine of giving chocolates and gifts to his classmates did happen, but nothing more than that.

Belated b'day wishes to your brat:)

I feel like my exam is coming up on wednesday when the monster turns 4. I am planning to have the neighbour girl home for the cake cutting; and planning to blow up some ten balloons myself. god my kid is going to hate me :-( :-(

2008-04-12T04:37:00.000-04:00

LOL! @ the shock.

Yeah - Kiran and I live in India where this is the norm. We're the cheap moms who still throw small parties at home!!!

Please invite me to watch your faces if you guys move back to India and have to attend this kinda drama. that should be fun :)

2008-04-01T15:55:00.000-04:00

Wow Kiran, all this in Bombay??? My husband and I keep thinking we should return to India for good to get back to the "simple life", but looks like things are much simpler in the USA.

I'm actually pretty determined not to succumb to peer pressure on this. My folks threw a big party for Chubbocks first in order to compensate ( methinks) for not having a big wedding for me.

The next 2 years, when I didn't think Chubbocks would appreciate it, I just had a high tea at home for family and very close friends with home made food et al, which was great fun. Last year was

2008-04-01T02:04:00.000-04:00

Genie's first birthday party was thrown by her Nana as per our tradition, and it was a huge one... we just had few games, but no entertainer/clown, etc was hired for the occasion. Two months down the line, her 2nd birthday is approaching. we still undecided about throwing a party for her. Shopping for return gift is fun and challenging as it has to be within a limited budget and it should be

2008-03-31T23:59:00.000-04:00

Now you make me think I will never ever be able to return to India...wyaaaaaaaaaahhhhh or maybe if I do I will have to choose a remote hamlet to live in peace.
Kudos to you for keeping sane and maintaining a balance.

If the kids have so much at this age what will they live for, maybe they will all want to attain "nirvana" and go and live in the Himalayas by the time they are adults.<

2008-03-31T23:57:00.000-04:00

Mummyjaan: I would love to be the cheapest mom around too, but it becomes a situation where your child is invited to maybe six to seven parties a month, and it is rude not to turn up, and once a year you need to return the favour. Which is why the hordes. Plus family and friends who are ever too keen to be part of the celebrations. Too much work to hold at home. I for one, am a slacker when it

2008-03-31T16:09:00.000-04:00

I refuse to give in to pressure. Most parties I have attended always have had hired entertainment and useless goody bags. I threw a big party for Chip's 1st birthday in our backyard. Friends and Neigbors. This was more for them and us completeing a year than for Chip. Second year, I invited only three kids that he enjoyed playing with - our neighbors two daughters and a dear friend's son. We all

2008-03-31T15:17:00.000-04:00

very good post Kiran. Thankfully in my circl eof friends both Desi and American, moms have managed to be sane . But I have heard stories of how far parents would go ...sometimes it becomes a competition among the parents as to whose party was better!

2008-03-31T12:57:00.000-04:00

by these standards, Kiran, I am still living in prehistoric times. K's 2nd b'day party had one cake, four balloons, only family, and two videos to prove that he had a hell of a good time. that's what it is all about in the end, is it not? I admire you for keeping your feet on the ground and your head sane in the company of such pressure.

2008-03-31T10:50:00.000-04:00

Wow.. R is 2 something now. R's first birthday, I wanted it to be a big one. We just moved into our new home too, so it was a double party. .. couldnt find any good caterer so, prepared the food myself. That was quite an ordeal for over 150 people.. But thankfully some of my friends helped and it all turned out great. Hired a clown to face-paint and make some balloon toys for all the kids and

2008-03-31T09:42:00.000-04:00

Wow - India sure is changing. I have to say that while NYC has it's share of crazy-expensive birthday parties, most moms tend to want to put away the cash for school fees (up to $20k for toddlers at private school.) There are loads of kids gyms and play schools that host parties for a decent cost, but then you get stuck with their offerings (specific activities, usually just pizza and cake.) I've

2008-03-31T08:32:00.000-04:00

This is India we are talking about right? WOW! It must be a full time job if you are pulled into keeping it up.

Am I glad I live in the USofA where kids birthdays have not reached hiring a planner stage yet or What do I know!

I keep thinking only people in BG's or Warren Buffet's league hire party planners!!!

Sure we do the Chuck E Cheese, Bowling Alley, Little Gym

Happy birthday to the Brat.

I must be one of the cheapest mums around. The first year, we had no party :D.

The second year, I invited 4 families , made biryani and a few side dishes and dessert, ordered the cake, had a few balloons and decorations around the place; I remember we had a nice time. Theme? Party favours? No, this went along the lines of the parties I remember in my
