Today Heidi @ Mt. Hope Chronicles has invited us to share about milestones and how we mark them in our families. Now, granted, my kiddos are only 6 and 3, so we haven't had just tons of milestones yet, but there have been a few so far. Mostly birthdays.
We love to celebrate birthdays at our house! I personally like to celebrate mine for at least a week or so:)
Something that I've been doing since The Princess' very first birthday is that I always make their birthday cake or cupcakes myself (with the exception of one year for The Princess, a friend made it because we were in the middle of moving). I realize the day may come when they request something from their favorite bakery, but for now I really enjoy having that privilege. I love having their input, getting their ideas and requests. When they grow up I want them to say things like, "Hey, Mom, remember the year you made______!" The cakes that my mom made for me growing up are the ones that I really remember fondly--not the generic ones from the bakery.
I'm looking forward to celebrating many more milestones in the future!
How about you? What do you do to celebrate the big moments? I'd love to hear!
And drop by Heidi's place to read more of what others have to say about this, too.
