Pinky’s Half Birthday falls in July! Yes, half birthday! Her actual birth-day is January 14! We celebrate the 14th of every month with a cupcake, we sing happy birthday to her and she blows out a candle. It has become quite the tradition! When you have kids, everything is a celebration, right?

If your birthday falls on or near a holiday, sorry to say, but you’re probably only getting one present. If your birthday is in the winter, good luck throwing a pool party!
