I hate to break it to you, but I remember the days when you never had birthday celebrations in the classroom.
Now excuse me while I got chug some Geritol.

Where do you find this stuff??

Our schools went this route a couple of years ago. We can't even bring NON-FOOD items on the kid's birthday anymore, like stickers or pencils or whatever. GAH.

Good. Less crap for me to remember to do.

Yeah, I'm with Poppy up there - we were lucky if there was a ladle with the water bucket, much less anybody bringing ANY treats in, ever.
Seriously, when did this birthday business start, anyway? My chilluns have summer birthdays so I don't pay any attention to goodies in the classroom.
We have to send our kids in with a nut-free snack every day. I find that enough of a pain in the arse, personally. It must be NUTRITIOUS - NO COOKIES, CHIPS, SALTY OR SUGARY SNACKS. AND ACK NO NUTS!

I find all this stuff you CAN'T do incredibly tedious.
But I'm a dyed in the wool subversive Mum, on principle.
