Fun Birth Day Book For Kids

birthday book

My baby boy, Charming, turned 6 last week.  I have a hard time on my kids’ birthdays.  A lot of it stems from the fact that I’d love five kids and I can’t have anymore.  Stupid Lupus.  Anyway, birthdays make me cry.  A lot.  This book, On the Day You Were Born, didn’t help matters.

My sister gave it to me at the hospital the day Charming was born.  I cried then too.

It’s all about the earth welcoming new life onto the planet.  Warmth, the circle of life, birth.

It’s a perfect gift for someone who’s expecting a baby in their lives.  Or for new mothers who might not remember why it was a good idea to have kids in the first place.

I read it to Charming every year on his birthday, and it helps make up the difference for all the times he destroys something precious in my life.

Great birthday book.
