As previously mentioned, we did a laser tag party for Alex's birthday. That shit ain't cheap, so I told him if that was what he really wanted to do, he needed to understand that was the only thing we were getting him for his birthday. That was his present from us. What I didn't mention was that it would be rude to point that out to every single person attending said party.
As guests arrived, Alex was standing there and would say, "Hi! Welcome to my party! This is my present from my parents." No pressure or weirdness there.
He is so flippin' cute though, so I'll let it slide.
