This little dude turned 10 years old yesterday... He's got TWO numbers for his age now... He went from this:
In what can only be described as 'the blink of an eye...'
He woke up yesterday morning, with a HUGE smile on his face. He is so excited to be 'double digits'. He doesn't care that his Momma wants to burst into tears at the very thought. Nope, he wants to sign up to take the Home Alone course, cause now he's 10, you see... Not only does he want to take the Home Alone course, he wants to stay home alone... Seriously buddy, I don't want to burst your bubble... But your staying home alone is going to happen in intervals of 20 minutes... Long enough to go and pick up a jug of milk, nothing more.
Gosh it's hard to let go.
We celebrated his birthday this past weekend. He had a sleep-over birthday... Again, once you're 10, you're old enough to do that. The party went great, in the end only 4 kids stayed over night, which was the perfect number. Totally manageable. They stayed up until the wee hours playing video games. There was lots of laughter and lots of noise, but I think I great time was had by all. I have to get my act together, and post a few pictures from his party.
Last night, as is our birthday tradition; the birthday person gets to choose the restaurant they want to have supper at. He chose Vietnamese [seriously, be still my beating
heart]. We had a delightful dinner then went over to Ama & Baba's
for birthday cake.
