When coming up with a guest list for your 2-year-olds birthday party, you will have many important considerations to make. After all, who you invite to this party, or any party for that matter, can make or break the occasion. Of course, you will have to invite immediate family and close friends, but who you invite beyond that is really a matter of who will make the day both special for your child and you, the parent.
|Don't invite these dudes...|
|Most certainly not this dude!|
|HINT: ITS NOT THIS DUDE|
Hell, we invited three of them to my daughter’s birthday party, and I have to say, it was a great success. No parents complaining of back problems from having to bend down too much. No grandparents getting out of breath because they couldn’t keep up, and no children running around aimlessly when their parents got lost in a conversation over who had the more troublesome child, forgetting that they weren’t watching said child.
You know, if the child labor laws weren’t so strict in North America I would probably try to turn this in to a business. I mean, screw the clown. You want to keep 2-year-olds entertained: hire a bunch of 6-year-old girls! They even keep the older kids in line… especially the boys.
So the next time you have a birthday party in a play place and you’re stressing out over who to invite, take it from me: offer some 6-year-old girls a place to play for a few hours, and a good time (watching over some toddlers), and you’ve got it made.
Those girls know how to par-tay… safely, and responsibly.
Your second consideration, of course: who will bring your kid the best birthday present? But, that’s a conversation for another day…
