Birth Month - Day 2

One of the first things I heard this morning was the Munchkin looking at the completed Birth Month calendar and saying "look at all the nuners (numbers) - great job Mom - you got all the nuners on the pockets"!

Day 1's pocket had a Take Along Thomas Engine for the Munchkin, a new toaster for Daddy and a new vacuum for Mommy (I know - not very exciting for Mom and Dad, but just wanted to show the Munchkin that not all the presents will be for him). Actually - all those things were not in the pocket -but I told the Munchkin they were supposed to be there - and we all actually got them on Jan 31st. But I think he is getting the idea.

Day 2's pocket held a note that said "a new book for the Munchkin" and he got Mark Teague's How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon - which we read this morning, but it did not seem to help with the medicine taking struggle.

We looked at the whole calendar, and Daddy was sure to show him the special birthday pockets with the names on them. "We gotsa lot of birthdays" he said!

Just need to make and add another pocket at the bottom for the 29th of February - I think it will attach with a button and be bigger - for that extra special bonus Birth Month day!!!

Glad you clarified, I was wondering how you fit a toaster AND a vacuum into those little pockets! Your birthday calendar turned out very cute and I love the new tradition you are starting for the munchkin.

Happy Birth Month to y'all!!!!

Hi Regina,

Your birth month calendar is such a clever idea! You did a great job with everything - from picking fabrics to concept to execution.

I agree with Lazy Sister Sue - I love this new family tradition.
