Jasper's first birthday kind of turned into a party for Roo and her friends. We had fun but it wasn't really a celebration of his big day. I'm not the mom who puts together effortlessly chic, seamless shindigs, I am afraid. My poor kids deserve so much more! Well, there's always next year, right? And this time, I'll be prepared.
