For several years, I have planned to plan (yes you read that right) a birthday week tradition. I read blog posts, made lists and never did it because I was overwhelmed with what I wanted to do to. This year, I stopped over thinking it all and just tried to do one little thing each day leading up to the birthday to make the week special.
We started Josh's week out at Papa and Nana's, as I shared on Saturday. That was a pretty good kick off.
Then, at home we started out on Monday morning by putting the birthday pillowcase on his pillow. He loved it and STILL has that pillowcase on his pillow!
I'm really happy with our week of surprises and will do the same (or at least very similiar things - even if not in the same order) for future birthdays in the family. Darryl things he is getting 50 balloons with $1.00 bills in them for his birthday . . .I told him to keep dreaming HA!
