Birthday Parties

February 23rd, 2013 at 04:39 am

Ok I know, I haven't posted anything an a loooonnnnggg time, but I still read this board every morning.

Anyway I have a question.

My Grandson's birthday party is today, he's turning 2. My daughter and her hubby have this big party all planned out, a Breakfat/Pajama party for goodness sake. (No one wants to see me in my pj's) It will be held in their Church this morning.

The boy has 6 Grandparents, 4 Great-Grandparents, over a dozen Aunts and Uncles, and several cousins, not to mention all the parents friends and coworkers. Needless to say, he gets ALOT of toys for both Christmas and his birthday. He already has more toys then he could ever play with (besides he prefers the boxes they came in) and every imaginable electronic gaget a 2 year old could want, several shelves of books and so many clothes DD has donated or traded almost half his unworn wardrob.

My question is, Is there a way to convince my DD and her hubby to maybe consider a "Colledge Fund Party"?

Maybe they could ask "Peanuts" (grandson) guests to only bring a small tolken gift for him to open and a donation to a special account for his future education.

I know it might be a touch to late for this party, but for future ones maybe?
