Great ideas for birthday traditions. Love waking up to a room filled with balloons! Also birthday countdown calendar with notes each day from family and friends with things they love about the birthday kid.
Great idea from another: "Mother & Child Mini Interview. Would be cute to do every year on your child's birthday. Put it in a binder with a letter to your dear one each year. Give them the binder when they are all grown up. This is soo sweet!
rush to their envelopes to see what we've written. The notes are sometimes a simple observation of a charitable act or a quick drawing to make them laugh. force ourselves to take a minute each evening to think about why we love our children" sweet idea.
