Why do we celebrate birthdays for our kids?
We might all agree that we want our kids to have fun; we want them to be happy during birthdays. And our budget is not a gauge nor a limit to how much fun and happiness should we spend to afford it.
Furthermore, the moments when we spend over our limit may not justify how memorable those birthdays can be. Yet the moments parents take the time to play with the children during birthdays, no matter how simple the preparation is might be the memorable moments.
