So last week we talked about a special breakfast for the birthday kid - Another tradition I know some people (including us) try to do is to fill the birthday kids bedroom floor with tons of balloons -secretly!
Last Oct was the first time we got to try this. My son was turning 3 and was potty trained and newly in a big boy toddler bed. We secretly opened the door and tossed in balloons hoping they would stay sort of near his bed and not scatter to the sides. I was so worried it would wake him, putting the balloons in didn't but the funny thing was he needed to go potty. Luckily he called to me and I carried him to the potty- He didn't notice the balloons till the next morning!
I came across this picture on pinterest -imagine all those long streamers!
