Perfectly normal children.

Up to now we've had one party for both (and a half birthday playdate/ party of sorts).
We're still debating whether to have one joint party or two little parties for the kids.
The thing is this - if we have two little parties, I'm having them at home but if we have one joint party, I have a GREAT idea in mind and it happens to be at a venue.
I introduced the party thing slowly and of course, one child wanted a joint one and one wanted separate.
So we gave it some space.
Then a few days ago I broached the subject again and this time I asked them to tell me who they wanted to invite.
Amazingly they each separately (I physically separate them because I don't want any of the "me too" behaviour) named 8 children.
8 different children!
8 kids invited means 4 - 5 pitch, especially since my kids have birthdays smack-bang in the middle of the school holidays.

Then I brought the kids together into the same room, showed them the spreadsheet and there was DRAMA.
I don't want such-and-such at my party because he's mean.
And so on.
So I stopped the discussions and we will pick them up another day.
BUT if we (they!) can't agree on the kids to be invited, then we might just go the separate parties route.
How difficult can it be? :)

D says it's my own fault for giving them a choice but really, I LOVE that they are real little people with ideas and thoughts and opinions, and we can have consequences and object lessons and I'm scaring you away, right?
If we do separate parties, I'd do them both on one day - two birds with one stone and all that.... have the house a big mess on one day and it's done!
For the twin moms out there, whether you have same gender twins or not, do you plan to start doing separate parties anytime soon?
And for the rest of you, do you think I'm crazy?
PS it is exactly two months til these children turn 6!
