How fast do the years travel when you have children? I know they go fast regardless, but the constant reminder of each child’s birthday certainly throws the speed of the years in one’s face annually.
Christopher had his fifth birthday on Monday. He has come a long way from the frustrated little baby and toddler that always knew his mind, but did not have the physical skills to do what he wanted. Well, now his body has caught up and there is no stopping him! Even his emotional skills are catching up…. finally!
Christopher received some lovely gifts from family, including a fantastic bicycle from John, Mia, Nick and I. We made a stack of brightly iced cupcakes for his class to share and Chris chose McDonald’s (much to his father’s disgust) for his birthday dinner. I found it amusing to see John standing in the McDonald’s playground trying to get the kids to leave after dinner. Tee hee.
We are having a joint birthday party for Christopher and Amelia on Sunday. I feel sad that we weren’t able to invite as many children as I would have liked, but with both children wanting particular friends and Fairy Raine’s guest limit (for good reason), it was not possible to invite everyone. 🙁
So for two days I have TWO five year olds!! Amelia turns six on Wednesday. See you then!
