My daughter Brooklyn turned 8 on Friday and this is what she woke up to find:
8 balloons across the doorway to celebrate her day.
What makes these balloons special, is that inside each one is a One Dollar bill!
That makes them VERY Extra Special Happy Birthday Balloons:)
My parents do this for all of their kids on their birthdays(until they turn 18).
I say "do" instead of "did" because they still have many kids living at home;
the youngest being just 9 months older than my daughter;)
I always felt so special when I would wake up on my birthday to see my balloons hanging there...one for each year of my life with my dollars inside.
Now I do this same birthday tradition for my children
and it gives me such great joy to see how special it makes them feel.
The best part is getting to POP them and watching the dollars fall from the sky!
It's kinda like a Grand Finale to the birthday because it is done
after the cake and presents and it sounds like fireworks;)
It's a little thing, but it's the little things that make life special.
Make it RAIN! ;) Ha ha ha! I am so Gangster.
Collecting her dollars and trying to unroll them.
She LOVES this birthday tradition;)
8 dollars baby!
I hadn't planned to blog this, but I had some friends over on Friday morning for some crafting and they all commented on how awesome it was and that now they are going to do it for their children. So I decided that maybe you might like to know about it as well:)
What little things do you you do for your kids on their birthdays
to make them feel extra special?
