Family Celebrations

How often does your family celebrate?  We celebrate birthdays, major holidays, anniverseries, but that's about it.

When my son was small, we celebrated everything.  I mean everything-the first step, the first word, the day we stopped buying diapers, Kindergarten graduation, you name it.  We liked to party.  We used to look for reasons to go to Chucky Cheese.

My son is now in high school, and we don't celebrate as often any more.  I seem to be on his case more than lifting up his spirits.  I spend more energy on arguing than congratulating.  I yell more at him than for him.  I need to celebrate the kid who means more to me than any other kid.  We need to celebrate.

Celebrate good times, come on.
