As a result of travel costs being higher on that particular weekend, I was unable to visit my daughter on her birthday this year. I was able to go a few weeks later and bring presents but I wanted to do something extra special for her on that day. I arranged to have balloons delivered to her school. I did not tell her in advance about the surprise. This was such a big hit with her that I’ve already decided to make it a birthday tradition!
If anyone has creative ideas for celebrating birthdays, holidays, or any other special day, please let us know!
