We don’t have a lot of birthday traditions here at Casa Chaos, but one thing that has become a big part of our special days is the Birthday Bear.
This guy came to our home a few years ago after spending many happy years as part of a children’s store in Maine. When the store closed, a family member rescued it and gave it to us, thinking – quite rightly – that any family with five kids would have a lot of use for it. Birthdays just don’t feel real any more until the Birthday Bear is brought down from his perch on the corner cabinet and plugged in.
But once he’s made an appearance, let the celebration begin.
