The Ridiculousness of the Toddler Party Yesterday we had a little party for my toddler. It was just a few people, a brunch, some Elmo . . . you know, a typical two-year-old birthday party. Even though we didn't go crazy, I'm still wondering why we bothered to do it all. My son, after all, thought it was just another Sunday morning — except with cake and an odd amount of accessories that included his favorite monster.
