What is it with these freakin' birthday parties?
When did we become a society that is required to intensively celebrate the birthday of every freakin' kid, every freakin' year? When did parties start needing a theme other than "it's a freakin' birthday party"? How did we arrive at the expectation that the fathers of the invitees need to attend these extravaganzas? Who came up with the notion of supplying "gift bags" and paid entertainers at these gigs? How did this happen? How long will it last? Is it really unfair to my kids if I take a firm stance and buck this ridiculous trend?
