For me, the birthday of children is a very important event. Still, for them it is a great holiday, which they are looking forward to. This is a day for meeting with guests and an occasion for gifts.
Every birthday usually takes place at our home. And all day from morning to evening, I turn in the kitchen. That stove, the oven, the cleaning. My daughter asks to inflate balls, hang the layout Happy Jam, and I swear and start to get annoyed. And this is wrong. It turns out that she distracts me from cooking. But, in fact, she is a birthday girl and she wants attention.
Of course, having called home guests, we are obliged to lay the table. We were somehow not accustomed to doing a modest celebration, just the closest relatives and relatives always gather, as a result, it’s 14 people at least. So you have to spend the whole day at the eternal flame (that is, at the stove and oven).
Somehow my husband and I spontaneously decided to go to the city with the children in order to walk. Walked through the center square. Fed the pigeons with bread, went shopping. But our children were bored, unlike us. They wanted to fool around and frolic and we went to an entertainment center, which we had never been to before.
There were a lot of kids. But at the same time they did not hustle, did not fight and did not interfere with playing each other. In general, a fairy tale for children. Do you want to – go down the hill and jump into soft balls. Or go to the play area, which is full of all sorts of entertainment for children. It is a pity that in our childhood there was no such thing.
And in a cafe nearby you can eat deliciously. The children’s menu is varied and presented in a very original way. My daughter and son got hungry and devoured everything we ordered. I liked this center, and the children, too. The husband was delighted and promised to lead there children for his birthday.
And at home, and in a cafe
But not all relatives support our idea of celebrating in a children’s cafe. Oppose parents act spouse. They prefer homemade food. They are not used to walking in public places. Therefore, we have to accept and give in. Rather, reckon with the opinions of others.
My husband and I decided to first celebrate the birthday of a daughter or son at home, with family. And then (the next day or at the weekend) go to the gaming center, where the birthday boy can play enough from the heart! There we decided to invite our godfathers, who have kids. They will have fun playing together, and we will sit quietly at the table.
That’s how we decided. Do you think this is right? Tell me, how do you celebrate the birthdays of your children?
