Birthday Tradition

Have any of you ever seen this plate?

Growing up, my parents had one of these and would bring it out every year for each of our birthdays.

Looking back, it's kind of surprising how much a little gesture like that can affect me so greatly. I LOVED this plate. I loved getting the chance to eat off it, and I really did feel special on those days.

Now, that I have a family of my own, we have a plate as well. Even though it stares at us from the china cabinet during every meal, I usually forget it's there. I'm just hoping I'll remember to use it by the time my kids start remembering things.
