Our daughter has become close friends with two little girls who share, almost, the same birthday. Every year, there’s a whirlwind of parties spread over one or two weekends as we celebrate Gabby (April 23), Vera (April 24) and Charlotte (April 25).
This year, Vera’s mom asked me in early March which date I was planning for Charlotte’s party. She also wondered, out loud, when Gabby’s party might be, so we didn’t all wind up scheduling them for the same day — many of the girls’ friends overlap.
I hadn’t even thought ahead that far, and joked we should just join forces and throw one party for all three of them. I’d been halfway kidding, but the more we discussed it, the more it seemed like a great idea. One afternoon, one party and three moms to plan it? Hmmm.
