Because this is what I do. Plan.
It was so easy deciding what to for Nik’s first and second, and even third birthdays. Because he didn’t really care/get it. He was happy no matter what. So I could plan away to my little heart’s content, starting 3 to 4 months before the celebration day…
True to form, I started thinking over options for Nik’s 4th birthday. Coming up soon (!) in June. And silly me, tried to include Nik in the ruminations.
Me: What do you want to do for your birthday? Pirates? Cowboys? Good Knights?
Nik: NO! No birthdays. No pirates. No cowboys. No good knights!
Now I have set myself up for three months of undecided hell.
