So if you have kids b-days close together (a month apart in my case), what do you do?

I had a nice big party for my son's first birthday, a little family party the second yr (I had a one month old) and now I have my daughter's 1st birthday in april and his 3rd in May.

I really want to have her birthday party the way I had his, w/ all our friends and family. And I want him to not feel bad that it's his birthday a month later and it will be much smaller.

Any advice on handling this now and in the future? I just cannot have 2 birthday parties every year!!

A first b-day is very special and I would celebrate hers big with lots of friends and family. As far as your son's, I would just do a small get together. He is only 3 and won't really know one way or the other.

First Birthday's are more for mom and dad. We have done both individual 1st b'day parties and we have combined a 1st b'day party with a siblings. Guess what, not one of them remember their party. Do what's important to you this year. You don't have to do the same next year.
