But my darling husband, who has always been much nicer than I am, jumped on the opportunity to remind our children just how special they are."Kid's day is coming up in just a few weeks guys." So while we kind of forgot about that whole conversation after a few weeks, Eli reminded us (several times actually) and wanted to get the specific date pinned down on his mental calendar. He had pretty high expectations. He requested cards, breakfast-in-bed consisting of a bacon and cheese omelet, yogurt parfait, and orange juice, and gifts. Norah debated about her breakfast options for a few days before agreeing to yogurt, peanut butter toast, and milk.
So on our first annual celebration of Kid's Day in the Costello house, John and I got up early to cook breakfast for our kiddos and served it to them bedside. The day was spent bike-riding, eating mac' and cheese, playing Trouble, and having ice-cream for dinner. The best part is that Eli firmly believes that this is a National Holiday celebrated by all. But they went to bed happy, knowing the joys of having special privileges and allowances for a day of their very own. I guess a little spoiling here and there is good for all of us.
The excitement of breakfast-in-bed was overrated when we actually tried to wake up these sleeping bears. We call Eli "The Teenager" in the morning.
Warming up. And yes, Eli has been sleeping on the floor in the tent John built him for Christmas for 7 months and counting.
And here's our pretty princess alert and fresh at 7am
And warming up to this special treat
Gavin was very supportive, although not impressed as he drinks his breakfast bottle in our bed every single day. Suckers!
Breakfast-in-bed party of 1 was lonely, so they decided to eat together in Norah's room
Such sweet kiddos
.......The remainder of the day's events were not captured on camera, but just know they were totally awesome.
Ending with ice-cream for dinner!
