Bean turned 2 last week. WOOHOO!! I’ve always been one to celebrate birthdays. They’re the best holidays of the year. I don’t need a huge celebration with tons of money to celebrate, a dinner and a song or a few songs is fine with me. Now that I’m a mom a birth day means so much more.
Celebrating your child’s birthday includes a bunch of other celebrations as well. Of course there is the celebration of yet another year of life and all that comes with that year full of challenges, learning and exploring. In a world like the one we live in, with so much violence and so many diseases one more year is something to celebrate. There’s the celebration of making it through labor, however many years ago that was. And a chance to reflect as a parent on what you’ve learned about parenting and what that child has taught you about yourself and about life in general. Oh and for us, this year we also get to cheer for 2 years of breastfeeding and all the bonding and nutrients that come with it!!
So even if you don’t throw big parties or give tons of gifts, just taking a bit of time to celebrate all that comes with being a parent makes that day super special!! A nice way to say thank you to our creator, whomever you believe in, for choosing you to be the guiding force for another life.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAN!!😘😍🎉🎊
