First Birthday Party - Baby's Birthday Party Invitation Idea

We have started a family tradition to throw a big party for our children's first birthday. When my youngest daughter turned 1, I had a sneaky suspicion that the abundance of attention given to the 'first birthday girl' could create some sibling envy for my oldest daughter, who was 5 years old.

In order to avoid the anticipated sibling rivalry to rear its ugly head, I elected to thrust the 'big sister' into the role of throwing the best birthday party for her little sister. Her main responsibility was to design the birthday invitations. Together, we decided that the theme of the invitations would be 'Why I Love my Baby Sister.' Big sister had a blast brainstorming all of the reasons why she truly loved her little sister (some were touching, some funny and a few that were amusing). She then colored a picture to be used for the invitation.

I used our printer to make copies of her picture and the poem, so the invitations cost only pennies each to make. Here is the list:

I love my sister because:
she loves me
I get to feel her in my heart
I get to see her all the time
sometimes I get to have stuff without her
I have a real good time with her
she’s a real good little sister
she always wants me to play with her & I want to too
she laughs real funny and real loud and it’s so cute
she takes naps alot
we love each other
