Encourage singing and dancing. I love how they request songs by singing the chorus or humming it or telling me who’s song it is (Jada’s song) or where they heard it.

Handprints and footprints. Messy, but memorable. I have a ton of ideas to make with them today.

Read stories together. They’ll probably make me read through the entire bookshelf.  And then some.

Plan a birthday party. With the birthday celebrant. (Mommy, I want to invite 100 people. / You’re turning 5, you can invite 5 friends.)

Lots of hugs and kisses and I love yous. Even if they spill stuff everywhere, or refuse to eat the last bite, or fight and whine and make me lose my mind every now and then.
