Today was my baby boy's birthday. He is now entering the terrible twos, though to be honest he is advanced for his age and entered this phase about 6 months ago! Does that mean he will exit them faster? (Wishful thinking!)
As a working mom, I never really had time to enjoy a full day of my child's birthday unless it was during the weekend. Being home allows me to have those special moments. Today I took him and his brother to the park and then to eat. (Of course I used coupons for the food!) I was able to enjoy a full day of his birthday.
My husband picked up a small cake on his way home from work and we sang to him this evening. He had so much fun and the best part is that I was there for all of it. We are having a big celebration for him with family and friends and combining it with my daughter's birthday next month, but to me this was the best celebration.
I know he won't remember either celebration, but I will and I will have wonderful stories to tell him about the day we celebrated his second birthday.
