Another reason to celebrate

11.09.2011

It is important to me to create memories and traditions for my family. My family had a lot of traditions and as a Mom, I want to create as many happy memories for my daughter as humanly possible. I want her memory bank to be stuffed full of big and small memories of laughter, family, togetherness, fun and joy.

One tradition that I made up when my daughter was born is "half birthdays". We are going to celebrate half birthdays. On our half birthdays, presents are not going to be exchanged. It is intended to just be a special day for that person. They will get an extra big hug in the morning, a special note in their lunch box (ok, that is probably just for Eva since I don't make B a lunch box), and they get to choose what we eat for dinner. When she's older, I might take her for a manicure or a spa day on her special day.

So... Have I ever mentioned that my husband is extremely generous and if I mention that I really want something, he almost always just buys it for me? Remember when I mentioned that I wanted tall brown Uggs but I wasn't going to get them now since our car took a very expensive crap?

Well, He got me Uggs! Tall, brown Bailey Buttons! And so that I don't feel guilty (at all) about wearing them before Christmas, I am calling them my half birthday present.


Remember when I said that we aren't going to give presents on half birthdays? I love being a Mom and getting to make the rules up as I go to best suit my wishes! This year, I'm getting a present on my half birthday. Because I'm the Mom and I said so!

  3. Yeah, I am not really an Ugg girl either but I've been told that they are a MUST have in the snow so I am jumping on the bandwagon!
