Is it like My Super Sweet 16 except for toddlers?

Pretty much. Average $30 to $50k for parties such as pre-school Graduation. 5th birthday.

One we watched was $37k for a 10 yr old party. In Texas. It was an Hawaiian based theme with his ultimate pressie being the $5k vacation. As you do :lol:

I think I have seen that a few times.

Its insane, they pay more for kids parties than most people pay for their weddings.

Most kids would be perfectly happy with having a bouncy castle and a few friends over to play party games.

OK, I do feel kinda jealous of all the big fuss over a birthday, the first time I had a birthday party with friends was my 21st, as a kid it was always having a cake at home with my family and maybe my cousins coming over to play party games.

Meh, it's just another way for people to show off their money, or really spoil their kids. It's a waste because most young children would have just as much fun with a cheap party at Chuck-E Cheese's. I also think it's bad to blow so much cash on teenagers because they will never learn things like budgeting and value of work. Unearned extravagances is never a good idea for teens.

Ah OK..so of course 3 pre-teens want an 80's party. This is a Mother thing. What is wrong with these people. Too funny. Daughter just said I don't know who Madonna is but Mom loves her :lol:

I think those shows are literally the embodiment of evil. You can see the difference in people who were teens before and after cribs, super sweet sixteen and all the rest of that hideous bling worship. It isn't just that people with ridiculous amounts of money throw these parties -it is that the kids who watch them think that they should have them too, and that having mountains of useless shiny objects is the ultimate success. uggghhhhhhhh

I watched it once and the kid cried her eyes out after her 6 months in the planning, two-hour $30,000 party was over. Well you would, wouldn't you? That'd be some anticlimax.

I can't even believe this. If we had this kind of money to piss away, that's the last thing I would think of. Sure, a family vacation someday.

I really dislike this kind of shows and I am including the sweet16 and others about extravagant weddings. In my opinion, besides being ridiculous to spend so much money- and you never know if they are paying for it or it is on the credit card- they create a need that you just have to have this huge party.

I don't have cable, and if I did I doubt I'd watch this show. I think it's in very poor taste to "celebrate" excess in a time where so many people are struggling just to put food on the table.

Okay, I'll step off my soapbox now.

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
