LO is going to be 1 in a few weeks - the time has flown by and has been a joy every day. I want to commemorate the day obviously but not sure there is any point in having a party. His birthday is on a Tuesday but OH works away so wouldn't be here. I thought we could have it on the weekend before or after. Only trouble is I work nights usually just one weekend a month and I have been rota'd to work both these weekends so would be sleeping during the day or tired and grotty. Is a party really necessary? If I had one I'd want it to be amazing and tbh I just won't have the energy and I know it will all be left to me to sort out. What else can I do though?
