My boys are dying to have a big birthday party this year and my oldest, Bug, would really like it to be based on his favorite TV show Wipeout. But throwing a birthday party for them has me really nervous about how long afterwards I’m going to have to pay for it. A week? Two weeks? How much will I sacrifice for them to have the best birthday party they can have. They already sacrifice so much because their mom is chronically ill; to miss out on having the birthday parties just isn’t fair. I’m going to do my best and I’m going to call in all the help I can so that it isn’t quite so hard for me but in the end I will still pay.
