Looking back, this was probably my sugar low point.
A sweet shop birthday party for her 6th birthday. It was fun and cute and i had a blast planning it.
And one gumball. I was getting better.
I handed out other things instead this time- shower gel, bath scrungy, body spray, and bundles of fabric for them to create with.
I urge other moms, when planning parties for home or especially for school, don’t use sugar as an easy crutch to make the kids happy. Be creative.
Make each party truly different.
Not just another party where you frost a sugar cookie with rainbow sprinkles. That was so last year, literally. Bring something new to the table! And you will get a ton of compliments, I promise you.
