I love birthdays. I love my kids’ birthdays, my hubby’s, my mom’s, sister’s, mother in love’s, brother in love’s, friends’ birthdays and yes, I even love mine! I’m not ashamed to tell my age. I figure having another birthday is better than the alternative!
So, in our house, we have certain traditions…
The birthday queen (or king) doesn’t have to clean up at all…Not even if they throw their socks on the floor.
The birthday queen (or king) doesn’t have to cook. (pizza delivery, anyone?)
They are in charge of the remote any time the TV is on for their birthday – the whole day. (unless Dad calls for an intervention)
The birthday fairy sucks the calories out of the birthday cake and other birthday sweets the night before in order to provide the birthday queen (or king) with a calorie-free and guilt-free day.
They get a cake…usually made by Buga-Buga. (my mom)
They get lots of kisses and hugs — everyone’s favorite part of the day!
And one more thing…they get to blog about their birthday traditions (if they so choose and are over the age of 36). Then they thank the blog readers who so graciously indulge them on such days (and all the other days!)
That being said…
So…what is your favorite birthday tradition?
