Celebrate Half Birthdays?

When my kids were 6 months old, we did a little cupcake and bought them each one present... 6 months is a huge milestone and we were proud.

But I have a friend who does half birthday's for her kids STILL (one is 6 and the other is 9)... and as much as I respect and honor her ways... I can't help but feel it's sort of obnoxious. Let me just say that this is the friend that speaks freely and loudly about herself and her kids non-stop... she over shares in a way, that everyone finds to be... a little annoying, but at the same time, shes a friend, so I just try to love her...

But recently she brought cupcakes for her son's half bday... score right? sure... But, she made a big deal out of it for everyone..

Maybe I'm just feeling like it makes me look like a bad mom.. lol... or maybe if her kids weren't little jerks a lot of the time, then I'd be more likely to think it was great...

Pretty sure it's just none of my business... ​

    I've heard of this but no we don't practice it. It sounds like your friend is a little annoying but hey I agree with Linda if it makes her and her kids happy, whatever, to each his/her own!
