Today is my son’s 4th birthday. He has never had a birthday party before. This year he will have one, sort of. Really, we’re just having the neighbors over for a BBQ Saturday afternoon and calling it a birthday party. No gifts please.
There will be cake though. An ice cream cake which I will pick up from Dairy Queen, probably half an hour before the guests are to arrive because that’s when I will remember that I haven’t got his cake yet.
Which brings me back to the fact that today is his actual birthday. The things that I have not done for him today are: purchase his birthday gift, bring something to his daycare to share with the class, or decide what we’re having for supper.
What I have done so far: run to the mall on my lunch break to try to find a gift (no luck), scope out the left-over grad balloons in the back hallway at work that still have helium in them, and call my husband to tell him that he needs to track down Hungry Hippos on his way home from work.
I’m such a slacker! But I’m pretty sure the balloons will be a huge hit so I doubt my dear boy will notice.
Happy Birthday kiddo!Photo credit: www.freedigitalphotos.net
