Your Kid’s Birthday Party Needs a Musical Performance

By  | 

When I turned five I had a birthday party at my house. A couple friends came over for lunch. We wore paper hats when I blew out my candles. I opened a couple presents and then everyone went home.






Three weeks ago I went to a birthday party for a five year old at an inside play facility packed with giant inflatables and a party room. It featured an appearance by two college girls dressed up as Anna and Elsa from the movie Frozen. You want to watch a bunch of toddlers shit their pants? Have two Disney princesses in dresses and braided wigs sing to them.





Looking back in hindsight my mom could have really taken that 5th birthday up a notch if she could have had “Pat Benatar” stop by after hot dogs and perform Hit Me With Your Best Shot in the backyard. I would have been a hit in the 5th grade if the band Whitesnake made a surprise visit right before cake so my friends and I could reenact the Here I Go Again On My Own video in my driveway. Maybe I would have been more popular in 6th grade if my mom paid five kids in town to dress up like New Kid’s On The Block and sing Please Don’t Go Girl?

On a related note two college girls dressed up in ball gowns and capes will be performing at my daughter’s 5th birthday party in July.
