Life Rule #483,395 - When you make a big deal about your own birthday, you have to make a big deal about everyone else's birthday in your family.
This week B turns seven. I know I can't believe it either.
Every year for his birthday, he has a birthday week just like every member of our family.
During birthday week, B gets a different surprise every day. Here is how this year's birthday week looks.
Monday - We are making Bouncy Balls.
Tuesday - A water fight when he gets home from school.
Wednesday - Birthday Cake - I am attempting to make this cake.
Thursday - This is his actual birthday so according to tradition, we are going to the Choo Choo Barn.
Friday - We are going to see one of his favorite people at their house.
Saturday - His birthday adventure - (or we might do it on Labor Day) We are going to Washington D.C. and going to see the Air and Space and the Natural History Smithsonians (They are free!)
A birthday week is just a chance to stop and show someone that you love them. By the end of the week, B is pretty spoiled rotten.
I do need your help though. August starts my marathon of birthday weeks.
B - end of August
Shad - beginning of October
Colls - beginning of November
I love doing this for all my guys, but sometimes I run low on ideas.
If you see any ideas for birthdays or how to make a kid or a husband feel special, I would love for you to send them my way. You can find my pinterest here, you could facebook them to me, or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I'd love to know what your family does for birthdays. How do you make them special?
