I may have mentioned once or twice (or a million times) that Cora's birthday is on Valentines Day.Side Note: She was due on February 5th and the ONLY day I DIDN'T want her to be born was on Valentine's day. Ha! Sure enough that little sucker came 9 days late, on V-day!
After she was born I couldn't help but be sad that she was going to get shistered on her birthday every year by her future husband or she would be one of those folks that has such a high expectation for their birthday that nothing could ever live up.
My idea to off set the future therapy factor is to celebrate Valentine's Day on the 13th. That way...
a) Cora gets her actual Birth Day to herself
b) Eli isn't getting a gift on his sister's actual birthday (because it is totally lame if your sibling gets a gift on your birthday... I mean shouldn't they learn to be excited when someone else gets something special and not feel entitled to something themselves!)
c) If we do her birthday after the V-day festivities then (my thought is) the birthday is what will be most remembered.
What do you think?
I need to know.
Is your birthday on a holiday? (or near one?)
What did your parents do that totally sucked?
What did they do that was totally awesome?
So here is what we did for Valentines Day... you know... the one on February 13th!
I picked up these Dr Seuss DVDs for 5 bucks each after Christmas.
They love em'!
Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.
The animators were most definitely high as a kite when they put together these shows.
What harm can it do?
She already has the muchies!!
My grandmom brought to my attention that I may offend families who do sibling gifts on birthdays. If you do sibling gifts, don't be offended. Be proud of your family tradition and think I'm lame :)
