Today is my sweet boy's 6th birthday, and he couldn't be more excited. After months of counting down the days and telling complete strangers about his upcoming milestone, he has arrived. As I flipped on the light this morning, he instantly responded (as if he had been waiting for hours), "It's my birthday! I'm 6 today!"
After a breakfast of cake batter pancakes (thanks to Chef John), he opened a present and was excited to report, "It's just what I wanted!" (fortunately we knew this from the multiple birthday wish lists and the constant reminders).
Pinterest ideas!), and off he went to celebrate with his friends at school.
After school, he will visit me in the office, where a few more presents await (have I mentioned how much I LOVE my child-friendly workplace?!). Then we'll head out for a family dinner at Red Robin.
I'll transcribe it:
Brady's Adventures by: Brady
Once upon a time there was a boy named Brady. He loved his parents. One night, Brady went outside and did an adventure. I went to Great Wolf Lodge. I went outside at night. I went under the bucket of water. I slept in room 1201. I came back a different night. Mom and Dad were glad. The end.
My dear boy, may your adventures never end!
