It’s a Half

We celebrate half birthdays in our family. We don’t really make it too big a deal but the kids sure feel like it is! We get a small gift, make their favorite dinner and dessert, and they get out of doing their daily chore. They sure enjoy being celebrated!

Today Madeleine is 5 1/2. For dinner she chose tortellini. Dessert is ice cream sundaes. For her gift I put together her very own sewing kit. Lately she’s been into making dresses for her stuffed animals but I only had left over decorating fabric scraps on hand and my supplies. She hasn’t complained but I thought she’d enjoy having some stuff of her very own. Now she has a big bag full of suitable fabric and ribbon and tools her own size.

She has been so grateful all day. She told me, “Now I will never be bored ever again!” She has plans with her friends to sew up a storm as soon as they get home from school. This makes me so pleased. I love that Madeleine has a desire to create. It makes her so happy to come up with an idea, work on it, and present it to someone she loves.

  1. You can never celebrate too much. This is such a great idea. I just went through our calendar and marked all of the half birthdays!
