I have three children born days apart (the most recent born a few weeks ago!) This year was the first time we did a combined party for the two older kids, a boy and a girl, simply because I was dangerously pregnant and didn't know if we'd get two separate parties in. I sent them each to school with their own invitations, and the invites were tailored to each child so none of the guests felt obligated to bring a gift for each child. They opened gifts separately from one another, which worked well, and they had a single cake and shared games. I was always against combined parties, but this one worked out very well and all the kids played well together. I'd do it again if they were up for it!

I'd like to get one for cupcakes simply because I don't like having to scrape the heck out of my pans when the batter inevitably drips off the side of the bowl. I would imagine a squeeze bottle would eliminate that issue.

We installed our own banister. We ended up using adjustable ballisters/rungs just so that we could customize the fit. But they're definitely still adjustable. I'm wondering if something like that might work for you? If you DO need to move furniture up and over it, you could lower it to the lowest setting temporarily? It might be a bit finicky to get them all loosened, but it could work!

I received a free kit at my dental office complete with custom-fitted mouth trays and little syringes full of whitening gel that I fill the trays with and place on my teeth for up to an hour. Did it make my teeth whiter? Marginally. Want to know what else it made whiter? My freaking GUMS. The gel can burn them, apparently, leaving visible white patchy marks on your gums. It heals over time, but jeez. It flipping HURT.
