As most of you know, the Frugality Is Free family is very close to greeting our first baby girl into our family. This wonderful blessing has come with a bit of a dilemma though, and I am hoping that some of you may be able to offer tips on how to handle this dilemma of motherhood’s blessings.
Our baby girl’s due date is set only a day before our middle son’s seventh birthday, and he would love to keep his birthday all to himself. I am going to do everything in my power to ensure that our children will not have to share their birthday, but then again there is only so much that I can do.
However, I am trying to prepare for a potential birthday conflict, as I might be in the hospital on my son’s birthday. In this case, I need to come up with a solution for how to make his birthday special without it taking too much work. We have already established that this year birthdays will be low key, since I knew that I would have no energy for elaborate birthday plans while pregnant.
If any of you have any ideas for how I can make our son’s birthday special, even if I am in the hospital, I’d love to hear your feedback.
