Hands down the “holiday” I love observing the most at home is that of my son’s birthday. I love Christmas, Halloween and Easter. However, his birthday is my everything. This is because … Well, I think the reason why is obvious.
His birthday is coming up on a little over two weeks. I’m excited to celebrate it. He will be turning 12. Feels like he is turning 22. Everything is moving so quickly. Before I know it, he will be getting his own place. Until then, however, I’m going to treasure every moment with him including his birthday. Now, I celebrated my birthday a few months ago, at the height of the pandemic in New York. It was the best one could do type of celebration. I wasn’t too concerned. Now, though, I’m very concerned. It’s my son’s birthday and I am clueless as to what to do.
I could take him to the zoo. But we have done that many times in the past. I can’t throw a party. We already have a dog. There is no pool to take him to. Typically, I take him on a trip. Usually abroad. Yet, that is not likely to happen. I can’t even get him a cake as he doesn’t care for them. My, oh my. What to do?
