With each of our kids on or around their birthday I have tried to take them on an ice cream date to Coldstone. Just a little one on one time where I can just chat and visit with them. During that time I have found out some much of what they want to be or do. I love this time to be able to see their little hearts and minds. I love this tradition of celebrating their birthday together just the two of us. I hope to keep it a "birthday" tradition. (It might not be on the birthday but around the birthday).
