Surprise! For Real??

This morning something surprising happened…

Last night we set up a tent in our basement for our daughters to enjoy their first, most likely of many, sister slumber parties, they are 2.5 & 5.5 yrs old. They talked and giggled for a while and before we knew it, they were fast asleep.

Hubby and I finished watching Knight and Day on Netflix (you can win a subscription to Netflix here) and then we went to bed.

Back to the surprising thing that happened this morning….

Hubby and I awoke to the sound of our girls at our bedroom door. I little knock and then loud laughing and yelling “HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY”. We sat up in bed and there was our 5 year old holding a plate with toast smothered in cheese whiz! She said “Daddy, I heard mommy talking on the phone yesterday and telling someone that it was going to be your birthday today so I thought it would be nice to make you breakfast in bed and surprise you“.

I almost cried – It’s a moment I’ll remember forever. Our kindergartener and her little sister making Daddy breakfast in bed for his birthday, an idea they came up completely on their own. I was so surprised! (Of course I did not have my camera in our bedroom and I did not want to run out to get it and spoil the special moment!)

How have your kids surprised you?

What a sweet thing to do! Make sure you right it down in their "baby" books. And I love the idea of pitching a tent in the basement-I never would have thought of that!! P.S. Did your hubby eat the toast?
