If it were possible I'd just have the party at my house, but when you live in an apartment that doesn't even have an outdoor patio, you're pretty much screwed. I thought about having the party at a park, but I'm afraid there might be rain that day. Yes, even California gets rain, and at the most inopportune times.
I have a feeling this party is going to be unreasonably expensive. But here's the problem: Every year I say I'm going to have a real party for her, complete with friends and a playground, I decide not to do it because it's expensive and tedious.
So, what the hell am I going to do? It's too expensive but she's turning 5, which is pretty monumental as it marks the beginning of kindergarten. On a side note, I'm not doing Chuckie Cheese. Have you seen that place???
