As you may know I have decided to celebrate the kids half-birthdays… evidence being that I tend to post pictures of donuts (or other treats) with a single candle on not an actual birthday. My husband isn’t exactly thrilled with this tradition yet, but hey I mean why not??? Nothing crazy just a little special treat and extra fuss. C’mon, who doesn’t love some extra recognition?! It’s fun to make a big deal on days that we wouldn’t normally think to celebrate. And as a mama watching the time with my little ones race by, it gives me a bit of extra joy to spoil them 1/2 way though the year! Shoot I counted the months leading up to having them, the months before their first birthdays and even the months before the 2nd birthday… why stop at that? While a photo with a number every single month until they’re 18 is excessive, especially since I’ll have to figure out how to get them to hold up a sign that says 216 months old on that day (graduation photos anyone lol) I kid. Seriously though, 1/2 birthdays are just another way to celebrate my sweet boys and show them it’s perfectly acceptable to treat yourself. I truly strive to show them love, joy and fun every single day. One of the most important things I hope to leave my boys with is….. Please don’t hesitate to find joy in every little thing and make some fuss over yourself once in awhile!
