Today is my son's birthday. We are having a Gross Theme to the party. We are watching the movie How To Eat Fried Worms. His cake will be a brownie/chocolate cake layered dirt cake. For his present, my mom bought him a Gross Science kit. I'm not sure I'm up for all of this.
Since his birthday is in the summer, right before school starts, it isn't always practical to have a big birthday party for him. We do little parties with the family and then he gets a Halloween party. That way he can invite his friends and classmates. It is a big popularity booster for him, which helps when you move so often.
