Daddy made him a special breakfast -- fried egg and Irish Bangers (Grandmother bought them just for him). Of course, the Irish Bangers weren't as good as English Sausage, but it was a good breakfast just the same!
Before school we opened a few presents. Just to tide him over until his party after school! At school he had special snacks (chocolate chip cookies that he helped Grandmother make), he got a birthday "crown" and sticker! His friends sang him Happy Birthday! It was a great day!After school he opened 1 present -- it was his Lego Star Wars 1 that he asked Santa for but Santa brought Lego Star Wars II (what was that about Mommy?). He played that until his friends came over.
We had 5 boys over to play. The boys had a great time playing with the "Shake & Go Racers" and Star Wars Light Sabers. We played Pass the Parcel, ate Pizza and Cake (mom forgot to buy ice cream) and opened presents. Before we knew it, it was time for our friends to leave!
It's so hard to believe he's 6! With a 2 year old in the house, it's so easy to get caught up in his daily achievements and two year old awe of life. Every day Sam learns or achieves some thing new. It's so easy to over look Josh's accomplishments.
But when I look at him and see what a wonderful, caring person he is growing into, or when I hear him read, watch him write, see him do math, I am amazed at how much he has learned this year. I'm totally in awe of him. I feel privileged to be his Mommy.
I love you little guy and I hope you had a good birthday!
