Balancing Two Birthdays On The Same Day

Every year, on September 29th, it’s always tricky. Do I do separate birthday parties or a joint one? I know. The important questions of life. But still. I want both my husband and daughter to feel loved and special in a unique way on their shared day. Thus, I ask the question every year. I decided to do separate parties this year. Partly because my brain was brimming with ideas for my little girl’s party two months in advance. (Crazy I know, but I tend to think ahead.) So I did separate parties but also tried to make their day fun. You can’t have too many birthday celebrations. And Emma Grace LOVES that her and her daddy share a birthday so we must do something…together.

So…while Daddy and Joshua went to breakfast with the guys,
Mommy and Emma Grace dined at Magnolia Cafe with the girls.

We all re-grouped at lunch time to take Emma Grace
to pick out a new dress and shoes!

And then some family time as we enjoyed a nice treat.

While the kids got to hang out with their favorite babysitter, I took Jeremy to a movie.
What!? In the middle of the day on a work day. YES!!

And finally the dinner request. Emma Grace, “Mac and cheese.”
Jeremy, “Sounds good!” So mac and cheese it was!
