CELEBRATE WITH A BIRTHDAY DOOR!
Birthdays are a big deal! It has always been important to me that our children felt extra special on their birthday. I began decorating the kid’s bedroom doors early on so that their special day began with a smile. Back then this mostly consisted of streamers and/or balloons. (If only I had access to Pinterest in my early motherhood years!!!) Now there are so many creative ideas to making a Birthday Door!
I waited until the kids would fall asleep. Those who know me understand that this could be an issue at times….I decompress quickly as the evening rolls around. I would then tape long streamers from the top of the door frame down to the floor. I would usually use 2 or 3 different colors, depending on their favorite at the time. I then would run the streamers across from one side of the wall to the other in the hallway. These would be at different heights giving them no choice but to crawl through or over them to get out of their room and down for breakfast. In spite of how tired I may have been, I am so glad that I continued this tradition with our children. As they got older, it became more apparent at how much they loved this!
