Is birthday month. Natasha and Cynda are a year older, it happens to all of us but this is why their's is signifigant. They're both under 21 (9 & 12), so getting older is neat and their respective birth dates are only 2 days apart (26 & 28) causing a lot of work for KayMom. Of course a joint party is out of the question, but no way am I going to throw 2 parties in 2 days, too much cake to consume. So every year since Cynda was 1 I have tried to space out the celebrations. So most years I get a suprised already! from their sisters etc. when they hear that Natasha has had her party 10 days or so before her actual birthday. I've thought it through, it's the only thing that seems to work, first of all, doing hers early allows me a 2 week separation between parties, needed for clean up and cake eating and Cynda is not required to wait way past her date to have her party. Good thing the next celebration on the calender is Mother's Day, I need a good breakfast in bed after April.
