Growing up, my mom was the Queen of Birthdays and always made me feel like the most important person. My sweet Milo is turning five this month and I want to make him feel just as awesome. For his birthday party, he and a buddy are co-hosting their preschool classmates at a swimming pool.
Because Milo’s party is shared — and not on his actual birthday — I want to go to extra lengths to make him feel like the King of the World on his big day. But how?
This is what I have so far: Birthday Boy can do any or all of the following:
- Choose the meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He has picked hamburgers and sweet potato fries.
- Pick the day’s activities. He doesn’t know that he’ll be getting a new bike or that Daddy wants to take him sledding. So, he might just pick build a LEGO city and comic book story.
- Eat a sundae as big as his head. Or share one with me, because he has a really big head.
Do you fill your dining room with balloons or a paper banner on your child’s birthday? I love hearing about all the special touches that other families do to make birthdays special days. Please tell me your birthday traditions and I will copy the easiest, best ones (please).
As part of a series sponsored by Hallmark, we’ll be posting monthly about our everyday life is a special occasion moments whether they are as universal as milestone birthdays or as personal as the start of daycare.
