So being the mother of a five year old and a three year old makes for lots of invitations to birthday parties.
Growing up, I remember the opening of the presents. It was a long and arduous process with everyone standing around shoveling cake in their mouths while having to make a comment about every single gift the birthday person received.
After moving to the East Coast, I noticed that the gift opening process is unceremoniously left out and I quite welcome that.
The parties seem to focus more on having fun, socializing and eating cake without the added half hour of present opening.
The two parties we've had since we moved here, we've also practiced this ritual. Close friends come over to the house after the party is over and that's when the boys get to open their presents.
It's my new favorite thing especially now that party season is in full swing!
