"Imagine just one birthday every year ah, but there are three hundred and sixty four unbirthdays!" -Mad Hatter
The half birthday--just one of the many special events in our first year of parenthood. Motherhood has made me appreciate all of the milestones, both big and small. We are can't wait to celebrate Brody's half birthday for years to come. And any excuse for party hats and macaroons? You can count me in!
If you're new to half birthday celebrations, here are 7 fun ways to start the tradition in your family.
Let your little one stay up an extra half an hour past their usual bedtime.
For little girls, do a fun half-up half-down hair-do.
Read the book "Oscar's Half Birthday" at bedtime.
For school aged kids, surprise them by taking them out of school half-way through the day to do a fun activity (My mom, who is a teacher. is probably cursing me for this suggestion. Sorry, mom!).
