Every year the thing my kids look forward to and talk about leading up to their birthday is how we will decorate their door. When they fall asleep, Brian and I pull out the ladder and decorate away. As they've gotten older, we've gotten more elaborate.
The next go around, I think I'll have to tape some balloons and sprinkle confetti outside their door.
It's a fun tradition and when they wake up, they are super excited to open their door. If you like to sleep in, it's a good way to say those special words without getting up at the same time they do. It will tide them over an extra hour or so, I promise.
