Inspired by the internet I’ve decided that we need to celebrate our life events more. After all the passing of another year is not all sad and for a boy that turns 10 it’s quite a big deal! I want to celebrate life and all that is good. And birthdays are fun!
This year I’m thinking of having birthday weeks celebrating – and not only birth day. I’m not all sure we’re going to pull it off since we are not that good of planners – and we have to do it with a thigh budget – but a few of our favorite things to do together doesn’t cost much anyway.
Since MT isn’t reading here (and doesn’t understand English all that good anyway) – I’m going to think a little out loud here. MT’s Birthday Week starts today and I’m not yet sure how this is going to turn out.
If any of you celebrate birthday weeks I’d love any recommendation sent my way!
This is my thoughts:
- Write him a note each day with things we shall do or places we are going (much like how we do it in December – our Advent tradition). I know MT likes this approach of secrecy.
- Make – at least – one of his favorite meals and watch net-TV as we eat (he loves that! And we don’t do it too often because I like to talk with him during meals).
- Go someplace unexpected. A walk or some sightseeing, at least somewhere he has never been before. Not to far away, though.
- Make invites together for his celebration with his class mates. Prepare the party together too.
This is as far as I’ve come. I’d better get stated on the note – and what’s in the making today. He’s getting home from school in a couple of hours.
Happy Monday to all!!
