Reading is FUNdamental!

I was lucky enough to have a mom who read to my brother and me when we were little. It sparked my love of books and reading at a very young age. Every kid should be so lucky!

Birthday Traditions

It's my birthday today! In that vein, I'm looking for birthday traditions people celebrate. For example, my dad, for decades, always gave me flowers on my birthday. Another example, family friends whose tradition was for the birthday person to cut the first piece of cake for him or herself from whatever part of the cake and in whatever shape he or she wanted.

So what are the birthday traditions in your family? Or how about one you've heard about that you'd like to try yourself?
