What Are Your Child’s Birthday Memories?

February 29, 2016 at 7:00 AM 1 comment

Ask your child what they think of when remembering their favorite birthday experiences. This will help you know what was most important to them and what might be worth repeating. It may have been a little thing that was the most meaningful tradition for them.

This can be any memory such as using a birthday plate, planning their party, a favorite activity, what they ate, how special they felt or some unique  memory of their special day. You may be surprised to discover what they remember.  What they recall may not be the same as your memories, yet it will be what your child found to be important for them.

Who would have known, this child loved the experience of opening her bedroom door and discovering streamers.

The parent simply taped the colorful crepe paper streamers to the top of the door frame, little did the parents know what a hit it would make! Leaving the streamers up for the day is fun for all  to see.

What is your child’s special memory on their birthday?

If your child uses Uncle Mike, Miss Anne, Aunt Susie, Josh or Kelly, then do they know the last names of the adults in their life? Is it important? Happy Mother’s Day
