Since my parents have always made sure to make our birthdays special I decided to keep the tradition alive for my kid as well. To make things more interesting I decided to start our own birthday traditions:
Madison is a very light sleeper so instead of having the balloons in her room to see right as she wakes up I had them everywhere on the living room floor. Since we were having a Tangled party for her on the following day we decided to get her special balloon as well. She loved it!
I completely forgot to take a photo of Madison’s breakfast but per her request we had pancakes while watching “Duck Tales”. On this day she is allowed to have whatever she wants for breakfast, even cake!
A special place to visit
Ryan and I decided that while she is young we will take her to any place that she would like as long is within reasonable distance of our house. Last year we went to Bulgaria right after her birthday, this year we went to Disney. Her choice! She loved going on the rides and seeing practically all of the Disney princesses!
A birthday cake
No matter if she will have a birthday party later we always make sure that Madison has a birthday cake. This year her request was a Cinderella cake!
A birthday interview
a birthday “loves” photo
I started the birthday “loves” photo on her first birthday a quick way to remember what she loved right then. The birthday interview was something I saw online last year and decided to start on her 3rd birthday when she could answer herself. It is so fun to hear those answers. Of course I will add my answers somewhere there as well.
