The best part of birthdays is you have an entire day dedicated to you. (In a family our size, that’s a really big deal!) You decide breakfast and dinner. You decide what treat to take to class. You get a birthday bucket with your favorites. People sing to you. Give you presents. Restaurants have birthday perks. BIRTHDAYS. ARE. THE. BEST.

And I’ve mentioned this before, but giving gifts to Bennett is fun. He makes you feel like you nailed it. In fact, when I was asking him what he wanted for his birthday he told me he doesn’t need to make a list because I always do such a good job. He then proceeded to tell me two items he wanted; Harry Potter Lego set and the Fun Jungle book series by Stuart Gibbs. Lucky for him, I already had both of them purchased…months ago. 🙂

The worst part of birthdays…having to wait another 365 days until you can celebrate it again.
