Today was our daughter’s birthday. Although she has moved out on her own, she still wanted to come home for her birthday celebration. When our kids were growing up, it was tradition that the birthday person got to pick the menu. Some of the menus that the kids came up with may have been a bit strange with things that you wouldn’t normally put together in the same meal, but because it was their day, they were allowed to make up any combination that they wanted. So, today, according to our family tradition, our daughter got to pick the menu: tacos, orange fluff salad, cold cuts, lemonade, and carrot cake.
I guess it doesn’t matter how old they get, kids still gravitate back to their roots and traditions and the comforts of home. Happy Birthday DD!
