My sons are two years and six days apart, that means a combined birthday “party” in August every year. So this past weekend was best time to do it and it was a last minute let’s get a cake sort of idea. I headed to Market Basket picked up a $12 cake and cheap ice cream. Then off to Dollar Tree to get each of them a $1 helium balloon and 2 presents each.
The reason for cake, ice cream, balloons and presents? The boys say every year, birthdays mean singing Happy Birthday all day, cake, ice cream and balloons. They also know it means presents.
Cheap or not the boys enjoyed their special day and soon my youngest will be able to say he is four years old, I can’t believe how quickly these two have grown from the “diaper twins” or “two in diapers” to “double trouble” and “best bud team”.
Thankful for happy moments, thankful for happy kids and above all, thankful for life!
