An Excerpt/Birthday parties for the kids
"Then, of course, there are all the moms trying to one up each other in the birthday entertainment side of things. The jumpy castle things, the pinatas, and the bubble machines. When I was that age we would run through the sprinkler in the back yard and simply dig into a store-bought, half frozen white cake. These parties are so elaborate that the guests are given gift baskets. It's like being in the audience at an Oprah taping."
