Birthdays are big deals in my family. Growing up, my husband didn’t really have parties, and his mom apparently didn’t even make or get him a cake every year, but we celebrate not only birthday with homemade cakes and parties (and more cake) but half birthdays, too. And that comes from my experience growing up.
This week, Amiyrah Martin from 4 Hats and Frugal asks the #VlogMom question (because it was her birthday on Monday!) this week, and I love it. I had to really think hard because all those birthday parties my parents spent time and money and heartache on to make sure they were perfect for me? Well, I don’t remember that many of them.
Except on that stands out in memory, although it isn’t a proud moment in my life. Again, having no shame is a good thing sometimes, right?
So what is your most memorable birthday experience? You have to have something better than my trophy, right?
