Now in our family Spring Break means BIRTHDAY! Eliada, our "Middle Child," will be turning 4 in mid-march! Holy moly! So yeah, ever since I was young we never really went to the beach like everyone else. It gets packed and I'd think it would be scary. BUT... after Annaleah was born we talked to the girls (well, Yvette mainly) about how we would now split up their birthdays.... each year we'd celebrate only one of their birthdays. And it is going to get tested in March, next month. I haven't started planning anything, but hubby has already mentioned it like three times, asking what we were going to do for her birthday. I said nothing... but I'm thinking he wants to have a little something. It's not like I don't want to celebrate it. Of course, we'll go take her or make her a special meal, treat her like a princess and maybe take her to the toy store. But wasting money on a party, three times a year on GIRLS! OMG! WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
Anywho... this week on Mama's Losin' It! Writing Promps. I want to share with ya'll 5 things you can do in our area. I'm sure where ever you are you can find something similar in your area. ENJOY!
