Batman Birthday Party

As the guests arrived, they saw the entrance to the bat cave.

Inside the house were streamers and balloons - lots of yellow and black. You and your friends made Batplanes to fly into the Batcave. Then we went on a hunt outside, and found three villians - Joker, Penguin, and the Riddler. We invited them back to the party, and played pin-the-bat onto Batman.

It was time to open presents - and you all tore in! We went to light the cake - but the Riddler had stolen the candles!! We went on a treasure hunt throughout the house until we found the candles. After the candles were on the cake, and lit - you blew them out before we could even sing Happy Birthday.

You and your friends ate cake and punch, and then went outside to play. You had so much fun!!

I'm Six Now, Mom

Little boy - you are six years old today - and, already you think your whole world has changed.

"I'm six now...I don't have to hold your hand in the street."

"Six year olds go to bed at 8:00, not 7:00"

"Six year olds can have candy whenever they want, mom."

"Mom, when I turn 6 1/2 I'll be in high school."

You are growing so fast, but are a study in contradictions. One minute you can take on the world, and the next you are scared to go to sleep.

This year has changed so much - you are in school now, and doing great. You are everything I hoped you would be - and I am so proud of you! But, don't be in a hurry, little man- take your time with growing up.

I loved watching you with your friends at your birthday. It was so cute - the way you all said "dude" after and before everything else you said. You forgot all about us, and were focused on your friends. You are a sweet, smart, amazing boy - and I am so glad to be your mom.
