It is a Sad Day When the Birthday Season Ends...


And we are not very happy about it. This year I explained to Jack the concept of birthday seasons. My mom and her old boss and dear friend, Ann Solari-Twadell, taught me about birthday seasons. Your birthday is not just 1 day it is a season that can carry on for weeks. It is really a wonderful thing. And since it is a celebration of your "youth" why not celebrate as long as you want!!
So, when I explained to Jack that his birthday season began on 2/2/08 when he had his birthday party with his friends he was thrilled. I then explained the birthday season continues on until your last party. So, here we sit the end of the birthday season. Jack was very puzzled and confused by this whole concept. But, he definitely got the hang of it referring to every day as being his birthday for the entire period. God bless him and may we all always be as "young" (at heart) as my sweet little red head.
