Enjoying Your Kid's Birthdays Just As Much As They Do!

You’ve probably got the festive season on your mind as all the Christmas adverts are out and decorations seem to be popping up everywhere. Therefore, your focus will be what Santa is bringing to the house and what everyone will be eating throughout those, equally, magical and manic few weeks at the end of the year and into the new one. However; one (or more; depending on how many little ones you have) thing that will also come around every year is your children’s birthday, and you’ll want to ensure they have a great time and make plenty of memories.

There are so many things to consider when it comes to your little one’s birthday; parents can often get lost in sorting everything and everyone out, and will sometimes forget to enjoy the special day. This is where a bit of preparation and planning can help you out, and you’ll be able to take the time to celebrate with your kids, and not just run around like a headless chicken. You can start by ignoring the competitive parents, and stop beating yourself up; your kids will love the fact the day is all about them, and everything else is just a bonus. The following are some ideas, inspiration and tips for parents who want to plan ahead so that they too can have fun on their kid’s birthday, and make memories together to last a lifetime.


A birthday should be a family affair, so make sure that you get the whole team onboard with the preparation and any decorating. If you’re having a traditional kid’s party in your home; someone can be blowing balloons up while someone else is in the kitchen putting the last of the icing on treats. Delegation is key, so let go a little of complete control and start trusting your other family members to help out; this way you’ll have time for a cuppa and to sample anything baked (for quality control purposes).

Another way to ensure that you get the most out of your little one’s big day is to look into local family days out and plan something that you can all enjoy together like trampolining for the active family, or a trip to the cinema for those who’d prefer to sit down. A family day out, perhaps with some of your kid’s closest friends (and yours) is a lovely way to celebrate their birthday, and it will take the pressure off from creating party bags and hiring a clown.
Give Yourself A Break

Not everyone out there is a Pinterest mum; there are plenty of parents who cannot recreate an image they’ve found on the internet or in a magazine, usually because they’ve had a professional stylist and photographer working on them for hours. Therefore, you need to stop giving yourself a hard time, and simply embrace the plethora of mum hacks that are available to you at the click of your mouse.

A stressed-out and snappy parent is no fun at any birthday celebration, so do your planning, buy pre-made food and decorations when needed, and try to enjoy each moment of your child’s birthday just as much as they do!
