Six & a Half

The boys are all about half birthdays and to be honest, so am I. By celebrating half birthdays it allows each of the boys to have another special day dedicated to them. We don't go all out on half birthdays like we do on the actual birthday but we still try and do something fun and celebrate together as a family. 

Kaden was born on August 31st which puts his half birthday on the imaginary February 31st and since we all know February doesn't have thirty-one days, we always have a decision to make. Do we celebrate on the 29th? What about March 1st or the 2nd---I am sure there are a lot of parents that struggle with this sort of thing.

Each year seems to be lending a new  reason to celebrate his half birthday on this day or that day and usually depends on what is going on and which day we have open so we can make sure to celebrate him the right way. This year I was traveling for work on the 29th of February and the 1st of March, coming home on the 2nd, so the 2nd it was. 

I landed late in the afternoon, picked up Logan from Ms. Brenda's and then we headed to ______ to pick up some almost-too-pretty-to-eat cupcakes. 


& as soon as Kaden got home from the school we went straight to celebrating all that he is. Which is a whole lot of love wrapped up into one very intense but kindhearted boy. He makes our world so much brighter. Happy Half Birthday Monkey.
