Adam never has to worry about going to school on his birthday and for him, we get up and the whole day is about him! Colin usually has his birthday on a school day and so I try and make it as all about him as I can. This morning he woke up to a birthday balloon on his chair and a favourite breakfast.
I have never delivered fast food to the boys at school before but because this is Colin's last year in elementary school, I thought what the heck! He has often talked with envy about his friends having food delivered. So today I showed up at noon with a Mama Burger and a root beer float (another favourite meal) and he was so happy to see me ;) Afterschool he came up to a cup of his favourite candy and ninjabread cookies, another favourite. Oh, and I drove to one of my least favourite places to shop just to get him his favourite cream soda to have with ribs (his request) for dinner. Colin was indulged today!
Then, we surprised the boys with a special trip out for chocolate fondue. It was so nice sitting and talking, watching the snow fall outside and having such a special treat. Colin commented that it was all the little details put together that made the day so great!
