It is tradition in Amy and Jason’s household that the birthday person gets breakfast in bed on their birthday. Alex got a candle in a special treat.
He’s a happy camper.
My Mother always called us (too early) to sing Happy Birthday, so Grumps and I (of course) called Alex and sang to him (condensed version) before he left for school. Thankfully, it is the love that is conveyed, not the great singing voices.
With five kids in my birth family, I truly don’t remember any birthday celebrations for any of us…no parties, that is for sure. I am sure there must have been cake, because Mother was a good baker. And with my birthday being a few days before Christmas, guess what………no birthday presents in my past either!
It seems that parties for small kids can be “over the top” these days, and I am not for that, but I do want each child to feel special on their, well, special day.
That’s how we roll.
Do you have a special birthday tradition?
Grab a donut while you are thinking…if there are any left. Hurry!
Life is good in Mayberry today, filled with lots of love for birthday boy Alex. Lucky boy!
