Make the News on their 1st Birthday


So, I don’t want this blog to look like a catalog. Here’s an idea that won’t cost ya….

Your Baby’s First Birthday is a very exciting time. Especially, if it’s your first First Birthday. Things seem to even out as you finish out Year One. What knocked you on your butt 12 months earlier has evened out, you feel like you’ve found your parenting groove and its time to celebrate. And it is easy to get carried away. But, let’s be real. Your guest of honor doesn’t really know what is going on. And it is very easy to overwhelm him or her. Even the Party MOMster has learned to show some restraint.

But if you are looking for a lot of bang for your buck — get your little one on TV. Many local TV stations announce Baby’s First Birthdays and it doesn’t cost a thing, just a little planning. Check the different news affiliates in your area at least a month ahead of the big day because there is usually a few weeks of lead time. Then, you just need to email a picture file (they will let you know the format they require). And then wait for the big day. If the Birthday is during the week, you may have to get up early to see it announced. I’ve done a 5am viewing. But, now there is Tivo and VCRs(ok, those aren’t new — I’m trying to think why I was up at 5am –probably just my enthusiasm) you can catch it at your convenience.

Getting your little one on TV gives you that celebration buzz so fitting for a First Birthday.

    what a great idea for a first birthday. My little one is turning 1 in a couple of months and I've been struggling for ideas of what to do. You're right…they really don't know much about what's going on at this age!
