Little Jacks just turned 3 and we wanted to make it special. During the whole months of March and April, I agonized about how to accomplish that. Everything felt either overdone or was expensive (and I had no interest in spending a lot of money to make it happen).
We asked LJ what she wanted to do for her birthday and she said, “I want to do it at Montessori School.” That would be fun and easy, but obviously not allowed by school policy. When we asked a second time, she decided that she wanted to “go to the fire station.” I didn’t even know if doing something like that would be possible, but we decided to explore it. What do you know? Fire station tours are a “thing,” and we were allowed to set one up for her party!
