I only recall a few birthdays too. Mine was almost always combined with my brother's (2 years, 2 days apart) and we never had friends over. I just don't think those things were done when I was a child.

In the area we live now, most birthdays are a decent sized event. I think the parties are a way for moms to express their creativity and a unique way to have a play date.

My kindergartener was invited to a school friend's birthday party on Saturday. It was a Power Ranger themed party and was to be held at their church. I figured they'd be doing some active type things that required a gym.

It wasn't until after Trent picked our little one up and after my daughter's own party that he told me there were 28 children at the party. 28! Trent was nervous about leaving Noah, even with eight adults in attendance.

28 kids? I take my hat off to that mom. No way on earth would I do that, nor do I intend to have one of my children ever attend such a thing. Too risky. I've never even heard of something like that. Without parents.

Some of these parties are social status events. Some are never going to be seen by adults and are truly for their children.

But parties here are part of birthdays.
