Birthday Traditions

Growing up, the birthday tradition we enjoyed was picking out our own special dinner, and we always had our birthday parties the Sunday after our birthday. Our family is still young, but without realizing it, we have developed our own traditions.

For My son, 3, I make him a special breakfast. The first two years, I made waffles, but this year he picked pancakes, so I made him a banana split themed pancake. He loves his whipped cream and sprinkles! And it is such a lovely way to wake up on birthday day!

For my daughter, 4, we have always had Asian food. We haven’t been in the same place for her birthday twice, so the restaurant has been different every time. She has always adored Asian food, so we find her a nice buffet and let her walk up and pick what she eats.

My youngest is going to turn 1 in a few days, and I am not sure what we are going to do to celebrate her birthday day, but we will find a way to make it uniquely hers. What was birthday tradition in your home?
