Marie77, I am a big fan of the concept of the 'birthweek' whereby celebrations and receiving of gifts is stretched out over the period of a week for maximum fuss and attention focused on the birthday boy or girl. Most of my mates do the same. Birthdays ending in a zero can legitimately be stretched ot to a whole month of revelry!

Maybe the anticipation and gradual arrival of the parcels as they are available could be part of the fun and he'll enjoy them all the more as they don't all come in a big overwhelming chunk?

my 7-year-old niece's birthday came in the middle of the last postal strike and that's what her folks did, Bigpud. they said it was so much nicer seeing her open new things every day than having her pig out on a bunch of stuff in a oner. how old is ds, marie?

He is gonna be 2 Aitch so its the first b'day he actually gets all the fuss is about him - I don't believe any kid no matter how bright understand Xmas and birthday before that age really ....

I didn't think of that that is actually a brilliant idea - I just tidied our lounge and made some space for the table and chairs - we will have 18 kids running around here :? "shudders" - so I decided to do all the prep work gradually anyway. Will start making ballons decoarations later (although that is more for the child in me haha). One other thing I didnt think of - I got the toys of the internet because they were considerably cheaper, saving about 40 pounds!

You don't sign up, you just keep announcing 'It's my birthweek' and insist on being given gifts, taken for meals and generally treated like a queen. Do the same for all your friends and family so they can't get off the hook when it's your turn.

I once explained this to a colleague, saying I live birthdays 'cos you get made a fuss of and can be the centre of attention etc. She said, so how's that different for you then?!?! Apparently I must be a bit of a diva then. :bsmile

Indeed, for I also have a massive wide bottom, but alas not the riches and own perfume. I do, however 'keep it real' as I am from 'the block', so don't be fooled by the rocks that I got etc etc...
