    • Seriously?  Twentyone year olds don’t usually want anything to do with a parental sort of birthday party.  If you‘re going to do something, plan it a day or two in advance or a couple days after so that she can go out with her friends on THE day.

    • Yes I’m serious! Of course, she’s excited that she will soon be an adult and finally be able to go to clubs to see her fav singers or band. Sure she can hang out with her friends on her day, but she’s not a drinker, a party girl and not all her friends are 21. Not all twentyone year olds are as you say.

    • When son turned 21, we organized a party for him at our local VFW post.  He was in charge of the invitations, which included family, friends, friend’s parents.  We all had a wonderful time, as the party was early in the evening and then afterward he and all his friends went to some local places.  In that respect, everyone was able to celebrate with him and it was an affordable party for his dad.

      BTW, I made most of the food which helped cut cost.

      Hope this helps.happy

    • I know you and your daughter are close so I would suggest some time together doing something she enjoys. And, you live in a great place to do just about anything. Maybe a mother-daughter spa day? Or a hike and lunch? Or shopping downtown Seattle and letting her pick out a special present? I don’t know, I just see 21 as a special right of passage with some time just the two of you. Maybe she can celebrate her birthday two-fold with a nice day with you and then a party of some type with her friends involved.heart

    • Thank you Cynthia! You know me so well. It’s not only my daughter’s birthday, but mine as well.  We both look forward to this special age whether it’s celebrated on her actual birthday or not. Well, to be honest I don’t look forward to me getting older at all.  Last year when she turned 20 it was my daughter’s request to go shopping in downtown Seattle and she wanted me to pick the restaurant. She had previously spent time w/ her friends. I like the spa day idea. I will suggest it to my daughter. Thank you again for caring. estatic heart
