For Miranda Kerr‘s son Flynn, the holidays are a huge deal.

“He’s very excited,” Kerr told PEOPLE at a Reebok event at SIX:02 in Santa Monica on Nov. 10. “He really loves Halloween. He got super excited about Halloween.”

“He’s like, ‘Okay, well, left we’ve got Thanksgiving, Christmas and then my birthday,’ ” Kerr continues. “I was like, ‘Yeah, that’s a lot to look forward to.’ He’s like, ‘Yes.’ ”

And with her little man’s 5th birthday right around the corner, Kerr is already starting to figure out how they’re going to celebrate his special day.

“Definitely a party — lots of balloons, his friends. I’m trying to [think] what would the theme be,” Kerr shares. “He’s really into train sets at the moment. He’s got a wooden train set. I’m thinking what I could do with the train set.”

As for one of her go-to mommy-and-me activities, Kerr, 32, says, “Reading books to him at night is one of my favorite things.”

“Curling up with him and I’ll say, ‘Okay, we’ve got three books,’ because if he could he would read 20 books,” she says. “He’d want me to read them all to him and I [am] like, ‘No, three books. That’s it.’ Sometimes we do five.”

Being a mother is the most precious gift ✨💞✨ #mommylife #skyscape

Along with reading bedtime stories, Kerr says she loves “getting up in the morning with [Flynn] and taking him to school.”

“Even before I came today for this shoot, I got up with him and we had breakfast together and then I took him to school,” she shares. “He knew I was coming to work so I couldn’t pick him up from school, but he just really appreciates that I can take him. I love taking him and picking him up from school.”

The proud mama adds: “Every day he’s evolving and learning at such a fast pace. He’ll say something to me and I’m like, ‘What did you just say? Do you even know what that means?’ ”
