When it comes to parties or events I’m planning I prefer to use paper invitations. Mostly, because I like to design the cards and because whether people will admit it or not, I think they still feel special receiving mail. My 5-year-old daughter LOVES getting mail.

My son is an active fella. So, I created a Potty Time basket that includes some busy items, as well as, everything he would need while he tries to potty.
