Today is my husband, nick’s, birthday. He never asks for much, but my 6 year old and i planned some surprises.
We wrote out 10 things we love about daddy on thin strips of blue paper. C dictated and i wrote. We included some that we thought 15 month old, G, would say if he could say stuff. ; )
Then we folded the strips up and stuffed them into a balloon. Both kids giggled their heads off as i blew up the balloon. They could not believe how big it got! (hee-hee…..i used an oversize one i had leftover from a party a couple years back.) Their eyes were wide as saucers! Then i added a little Permanent marker labeling to the front of the balloon.
C keeps asking me how daddy is going to pop the balloon to get the messages out.
“Will he squeeze it with his bare hands?”
“Will he pop it with a pin?”
“i want to watch!”
Then C went to town decorating the cute bag from the store where got a couple of the gifts.
Oh, and this guy supervised.
i wrapped the gifts with colorful tissue, we added some homemade cards, made some birthday brownies and now we are ready for the birthday dude to get home from work already!!
Love you! Happy Birthday!
