Works for Me Wednesday
You remember the song from "Alice in Wonderland" - "A Very Merry Unbirthday" don't you? Sometimes it's fun to celebrate someone's birthday even when it's not really their birthday! Half-Birthdays are particularly good excuses for that. And as you can see from the pictures below, it's not a unique tradition:
Today is David's Half-Birthday! If you were around we'd probably even bake a half-cake for you.
Because he has a winter-time birthday, there were a few years when he was growing up when we deliberately saved some of his birthday budget for six months later and then took him to the toy store in June so he could get some summer toys like water guns and pool floats. For some reason it doesn't seem like so much of a problem for summer birthdays (probably because of Christmas).
Each member of our family is unique, and it's always fun to look for ways to celebrate that. This is just one that works for us. Go here to find ideas that work for other families.
