It is true that children have infantile amnesia until about age 4. This means that the experiences of the little ones will help them understand the world and know how to react in their environment, learn the language and have a feeling of belonging, but when they are older they will remember almost nothing of that stage. These memories fall asleep in the mind and when children grow up, they do not remember what happened at that time of their lives. For this reason, there are parents who think that throwing a birthday party for them when they are small is not makes sense.
But it makes a lot more sense than you might think, because even though do not remember the experiences, but the emotions and feelings that they have since they were born remain engraved in their hearts forever. It is these emotions that will shape you as an adult… or another.
Enjoy the celebration
If someone has ever told you that you don’t deserve the It’s a shame to throw a birthday party for your two or three-year-old child because so much effort is useless since they won’t remember, don’t pay attention! Because even if they don’t remember, you will… And your little one will remember your effort, how much fun they had and how much they love them in their family (essential for their good physical and emotional development).
Also, as a good birthday party, it is logical that you immortalize the moment with photographs or videos, which will be a great treasure to show your child when they grow up. It is not known what will happen in the future, tomorrow is uncertain and therefore, we have to give the best of ourselves in the present.
We are the memories that we form in our childhood, even those that are blurred in the mind. Therefore, even if your child is only 1 year old, it is a good idea to celebrate his or her birthday. You need to feel that love around you and realize how loved you are within your family.
Take lots of photos!
Take lots of photos, print them, enjoy those captured memories and keep them as your greatest treasure so that when your little one grows up, you can show them to them and enjoy together looking at them while you tell them how were his parties, always being by his side to blow out the candles on the cake.
Those memories captured on paper will not only be a treasure for you, they will become the most valuable thing in the world for your child at the moment that nature decides that you will no longer be by his side, when your life ends. finish. It will be your child’s most precious thing because it will be part of the emotional legacy you leave him/her.
It doesn’t matter if the photo taken isn’t perfect, if the house isn’t shiny or if it’s not all as perfect as it looks on some Instagram profiles. It really doesn’t matter, because what really matters in all this is the memory embodied in the image, you… your unconditional love… One day you will want to remember in detail what your baby’s face was when he took his first steps, the moment he took his first piece of cake or what his birthday parties were like… that’s only possible if you take photos.
Make it special
Therefore, make it special in your hearts. Let him enjoy as much as possible, that you are just as happy as your child that day. Because while it is true that it is your little one’s birthday because it was the day he was born, it is also the day you gave him life… So that day is also important and special for you.
