A CHILD’S first birthday was marked by his parents going out for a meal, they confirmed.
Family friends say Kyle Stephenson was happy with his parent’s decision as there was a babysitter there to dangle a Spongebob toy in front of him and clean his bottom when required.
Kyle’s mum Nikki said: “We wondered what would be the perfect gift for a kid who’s still startled by his own farts and decided it would be tapas.
“A party he’d never remember with other kids we don’t like would have cost about £300, so we were even able to order wine from the middle of the list.”
Kyle’s parents plant to celebrate his second birthday by going to Majorca or Crete while he remains at home with his grandparents.
Nikki added: “You can’t put a price on your child’s happiness, but £10 for a helium balloon with a ‘1’ on it is definitely above that price.”
