I am having a huge dilemma trying to plan my son's 3rd birthday party. I just watched an episode of a web show called "Jen and Barb Mom Life" and they were talking about how birthday parties had become a competition between parents and how sometimes the child gets left out. I had never really thought about it that way before I watched the episode. I want to have a big party for my son, but this usually means a lot of my friends and family getting together, and I want to get things that he can enjoy even if they are a bit expensive. Any ideas about how to make the day super special, without making it too big?
