I have always and will always find SOME WAY to give my children special holidays and birthdays. Even if it's just a cheap boxed cake and a small toy or book. We've had some meager holidays, but I've always managed to scrimp up enough to give my son that, and will do the same for this baby.
Oh yea. Three years ago I was laid off. :( it happened three months before my sweet dd's b'day. I was so devastated. I managed.to have a little something at home but no party. I hayed myself for that. I felt so guilty
With the exceptions of my oldest first 2 birthdays, the kids have never had a birthday party. And no one even asked until dd did this year. But didn't do what she wanted because of money, but will do it in a couple of weeks.
