Confession time, y'all. I have a bad mom habit I'm in dire need of breaking. When it comes time to shop for my kid's birthday presents, I overdo it. Every. Darn. Year!
Which is probably why my daughter's bedroom is like a hazardous waste dump. I buy her too much stuff. It's not that I believe in excessive birthday parties; I just never feel like I've gotten her something that is just right, so I keep buying and buying.
Moms, are you with me? This is our problem. We try way too hard to get make things perfect and magical. But when push comes to shove, the best birthday gifts, the ones kids remember the most, aren't always the most expensive or most planned out.
