Happy Birthday Morning

When your a child, your birthday is one of the most anticipated days. My children start counting down the days to their next birthday almost immediately after their special day ends. Because the day is held in such a high regard to my precious little one's, I do my best to make it a wonderful, fun filled day and I start with the Happy Birthday Morning!

Tidbit - Make the first moments of your child's birthday, moments that will never be forgotten.

Months before my children's birthday we start talking about what kind of theme they would like for their big day, and they love to pick it out. Have your child pick out what theme they would like for their next birthday.

The night before your child's birthday decorate an area in your home that your child will see first thing. For me it's the dining room. I start with hanging streamers from the ceiling. There is something about streamers to a child, when they see them they just know that good things will follow.

Next, put out Mylar balloons of the theme they have chosen. (Note: Regular helium balloon's only last a short time, so go with Mylar which seem to have a never ending life span)

Have a table cloth on the table and birthday decorations all around and have waiting for them on the table, one of their birthday presents.

Serve a special breakfast such as pancakes with whipped cream and sprinkles. It starts their day out in a special memorable way and they will always look forward to their Happy Birthday Morning!

Extra Tidbit
- We use every birthday as an opportunity to look back at the years that have passed. We do this by looking at the video's and pictures of their birth and the past birthdays. They enjoy looking at how they have grown and we enjoy slowing down time and remembering to appreciate them before they are all grown up.

  1. Love this! I make cupcakes for the kids to bring into school - it always makes them feel special! Each of the kids has their own special birthday ritual - for example, my Kayla and I go to pick out a birthday outfit every year. You don't have to spent a lot of money to make your kids feel special, it's the thoughtfulness that sticks with them :)
