First birthdays are a big deal, not for the child as much as it is for the parents or maybe I should say–mothers.
I was more than thrilled to celebrate my child’s first birthday! They are walking, chattering and making the cutest expressions. I watched him open (with some help) his gifts. I snapped pictures of him eating his cake and making a huge mess.
I was one proud mother! I wanted my son to have a “Happy 1st Birthday” so I could have pictures to cherish and share with him when he got older.
All of us moms understand the significance of birthdays. My son, Dustin, who is single and 33 years old doesn’t have a clue.
When Dustin’s best friend Jayson called to remind him that his daughter was having her one year old birthday party in an hour and asked if he was coming, Dustin said, “Yes, I’m on my way.”
He had forgotten all about it and hadn’t purchased a gift!
