Christmas Birthdays…

I know there are some of you out there with Christmas birthdays.
The advice given to us when our little girl was born on December 20th, 4 years ago…..was to never wrap her birthday presents in Christmas paper, or use holiday cupcake liners for her cupcakes, or to give her a gift and say it was for her birthday and Christmas.  Ick.  No fair.
So even though the holidays are busy busy…….we tried to give our Little Miss a birthday-themed day.  
Without the Christmas colors, papers, songs, bows, etc.  
Just simple birthday stuff.
And my word.  
How did my sweet baby girl, so itty-bitty and full of plump, yummy, kissable cheeks…….
…………turn into a big 4 year old, little lady? 
It’s okay, I still kiss on those yummy cheeks, though they’re not as full as they used to be.
Happy Birthday to all of you Christmas-time birthdays!

    My birthday is on Christmas Day, and honestly? If you raise your children to be appreciative and grateful, it really isn’t a problem!
    I have never cared if a gift was wrapped in birthday paper, Christmas paper, burlap or unwrapped! If someone bought me a gift, I thought it was great, and I appreciated it.

    The more of a production you make out of it is what makes the child turn it into an issue, or feel that it SHOULD be an issue.
    I do remember I always got my birthday gifts after dinner, and I had my birthday party with friends on the last day of school before the holidays, but honestly, I truly do not remember what my gifts were wrapped in….
