We like celebrations. Years ago, when the boys were small we started celebrating 1000 day milestones. We don't have a big party - just a special dinner, cake, or pie - something special to mark the passing of the day. These celebrations are fun because they are not annual events. They are also at different times of the year than the person's birthday and sometimes even catch us by surprise. B has a spreadsheet on the computer to figure out everyones 1000 day schedule but we do need to remember to check it every once in a while.
Today, D, my oldest, is 7000 days old. We are off to take him out to dinner to celebrate. P will have her 2000 day celebration NEXT weekend. I recently passed a 1000 milestone but we won't say how many thousand.
What special things does your family celebrate?
