Do you celebrate half birthdays in your house?
We did last night.
Poor Fuzz….he had the misfortune of being born in July. As a December person I did not understand the heartbreak of a summer birthday.
Homeskillet has never brought a b-day treat to class.
So this year he presented the half-birthday idea.
and I bought it.
While he was gone this weekend I bought a $1.75 birthday banner and cut it in half…get it…half…
I baked half a birthday cake. I am in no way a cake decorator…but it was yum, nonetheless. It was Fuzzy’s idea to put the 10 candles halfway up….I liked it 🙂 He didn’t get to light or blow them out, but we did enjoy a Funfetti treat after dinner.
I went and grabbed a semi-decorated premade cookie cake at the local grocery store and had them slap “Happy Half Birthday” on it.
He took that stuff to school today like he was the king.
and I think that was the point 🙂
So are half birthdays a part of your world? I enjoyed a low key way of making him feel special…I do not, however, seeing it get any crazier than it was. Not a big event, just a little bit of something.
