He’s 6!

six years ago now
snuggling fresh furry ears
seems like yesterday

The wee one turned six today. Six! I can hardly believe it. He’s a regular full-on dynamo of a kid and I still try to buy him toddler sized clothes.

He had a super party today. It was crazy, and full of screaming six-year-olds, and at one point I kind of wanted to have a nervous breakdown, but all-in-all, it went really well.

I spent all day yesterday making him a castle cake. It was good therapy for someone who’s been couch-bound. I just sat at the kitchen table and fussed over the cake for hours. It was a ton of fun and the wee one gave me the best (heart-breaking) compliment when he said it made him sad to have to eat the cake.

There’s still so much mess and chaos, but I am not moving from the sofa tonight. What a fun, exhausting day.

How can he be six? Really. How?

  4. Loved the cake. With the monster in the moat and the stained glass windows . . . someone miss doing projects for Humanities class or what? 🙂
    Not sure if I mentioned it or not, but I had the partial placenta previa when I was pregnant with Yara. If you want someone to rant on the phone with or to type to… just drop me a line. I remember how frustrating it was . . . . Your cake looked fantastic. Hope all is well with you and the family….
