We need to talk about Penelope Disick's first birthday party for a minute, guys. There was a famous party planner involved; about 150 of Penelope's nearest and dearest in attendance; and balloons. Lots of balloons. The day sounds, and from Instagram, looks, like it was absolutely gorgeous. But a party that elaborate for a 12-month-old? That's cray.
I get that it's Kourtney's money and she'll spend it on her adorable daughter if she wants to. But I just cannot wrap my head around the whole "big" first birthday party thing. Not for a second.
I totally understand wanting to celebrate your child's first year of life -- and you, surviving your first year of parenthood -- but your kid isn't going to remember the party; they'll probably be a little overwhelmed; and there's a good chance they'll sleep through a big portion of the event. Again, I fully realize that it's your baby -- or in this case, Kourtney's baby -- but I can't imagine forking over a ton o' cash for a party for a baby. The older your child gets, the more they'll realize what a party is -- and the more they'll want one.
Until my daughter gets a bit older, I'm more of a small gathering kind of gal. And so is my child, apparently.
Did you throw your baby a big first birthday party?
