It's time to Celebrate!
March is a big birthday month in my family. Within 3 days we have 7 birthdays. My son's, my paternal grandfather, and my littlest sister are all on the 28th, my brother and his wife share a birthday on the 26th, and my oldest sister and maternal grandmother share a birthday on the 27th. My brother-in-law's birthday is also in March on the 21st. None of this includes cousins, aunts, or uncles that also have birthdays in March. So, needless to say March seems to be a month long birthday celebration!
Birthdays were always a big deal in my house growing up. The birthday kid got to choose what we had for dinner and we had a birthday bear that sat on the edge of the plate. We also generally got to pick an activity to do with the family and usually we had a couple of friends over to celebrate as well. My parents always made a big deal about birthdays and I always remember feeling special on my big day.
My son will turn 2 on the 28th of this month. We plan on having a family party and eating cake and ice cream. Since Lucas is currently in love with the movie Cars, we are going to have a Mack cake (he recognizes Mack, but not Lightning McQueen), and having balloons, hats, and other decorations. We always try to make as big of deal about a birthday as possible!
Tell us how you celebrate birthdays in your house!
