Today is my son’s birthday, he is 5. We are not having a party this year. I just can’t afford it as well as everyone is on vacation and his birthday’s are usually pretty lame. This year also, 2 of my older son’s won’t be here. .they aren’t even in the state so we asked Eric what he wanted to do and he said he wanted to have an “Eric” day.
We are going to take him to the movies to see Cars and then we are going to take him to a restaurant of his choice (my guess it will be McDonalds…yuk!) and he got a brand new bike and helmet. He’s excited about having a “me” day instead of the traditional party. I figure the whole day will only cost us about $50.00 as opposed to hundreds for a party.
