First and foremost I would like to wish my wonderful and amazing husband a very happy Birthday!
In our house we always celebrate birthdays no matter how old or young you are. On the day of your birthday you are woken up to the Beatles Birthday song and there are always balloons in your room.
This tradition was passed down from Charlie's mom and I just love it! Henry loves it because why wouldn't you. He gets so excited about these things. Last night I had him help me blow up the balloons. Pretty sure he wanted to take them to Daddy right then and there but I told him he had to wait.
This was Mary's first time experiencing the tradition and I would say by the look on her face from the pictures she loved it.
After your song and the balloons are all over the bed you get to open your gifts. Henry ran to get them and gave them to Charlie. Of course he started tearing into them for him but we were able to hold him off. I was waiting for him to ask us where his gift was. He likes to assume since someone else is getting something that he should too.
Tonight, we will head to dinner and celebrate some more and then Saturday we will celebrate again.
I have one more thing to share. That crazy kid in those pictures, you know the one you can't see because he never sits still, well he is probably one of the sweetest kids around.
Yesterday, when I picked him up from school, he told me he got ten stars. When they get ten stars during the day, they get to pick a prize from the box. Henry picked play money and he was so excited. While Henry went to get his play money from his lunch box, the teacher told me that he told her that he was so excited to get the money because his Daddy's Birthday was coming up and now he could use the money to buy him something. I think my heart melted right then and there.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARLIE (DADDY) - WE LOVE YOU!
