Goodbye formula, rear-facing carseats, and bottles!! Hello whole milk, Stride-Rites, and sippy cups!!
PB and I are finally beginning to get this “parenting” thing down when it comes to first birthdays. It only took four first birthdays for us to realize that it doesn’t have any meaning whatsoever to the child celebrating the first birthday! We are coming up on Cub 4’s first birthday in a few weeks.
Although we’re all excited about her first birthday, Cub 4 could care less! I think we could re-wrap a couple of her Christmas presents in birthday wrapping paper and she wouldn’t be any more interested in them than she was on Christmas morning! Later, when she is older, she may look back at some of the pictures and realize that we pulled one over on her, but for now – I think it’s the best idea ever! Of course, she will have her personalized birthday cake to squish between her fingers, but no big birthday party (that really ends up being an adult party) for Cub 4. It’s not about us, it’s about Cub 4. As long as she has her crackers, Apple Jacks, and a cup of milk, life is good!
Peace and Blessings!
