March 1st is my son’s half birthday. (Yes, I am that mom that knows his half birthday.)
On his 6 month, 18 month, and 2 1/2 half birthdays they all seemed very significant and we even had little half birthday celebrations.
But this year, this three and a half, didn’t send me reeling. Three and a half seems normal, ok, not life changing. I mentioned it to my husband who gently rolled his eyes in his “Really? But I still think your adorable” way. Or at least that’s what I think it means.
We had a busy but lovely weekend and I managed my son’s three and a half birthday without a mushy moment or a tear. Very big progress for this mushy mommy.
But I did write it down on our calendar, marking the milestone down on paper and recording the memory.
I’m over at Moonfrye today talking about just that; the beauty I find in good old fashioned paper calendars.
Join me there as I tell you why a calendar is so much more than an event keeper; it’s my memory holder.
I would be honored if you come tell me how you keep your memories.
