Seriously, where does the time go? My baby turned 6 today, that's my warning for a weepy mommy post. I love this kid so much, and it makes me a bit sad thinking another year has passed. I tell him every year that this is his last birthday, no more growing for him. I love just watching him play by himself, or watch him interact with people, or watch him when he doesn't think I'm around like at Scouts or at a friend's house. He's a good kid, he still loves to give cuddles, he's a bit shy, and a bit more sensitive than his daddy would like, but I'm ok with that!
Today after his party, he asked me if we had any more presents for him. I told him no, and that we gave him all his presents. And he says, you're forgetting one, and he comes over and offers me his cheek to kiss. He's always doing things like this. Reminding me if I've forgotten to give him his good morning hug or bedtime hug. When we're sitting on the couch he will snuggle up to whomever is closest and put his arm around them.
Today we had a little birthday party for him. He loves Disney Planes, so we did a plane theme. I had someone make his cake for me (what a stress reliever!). The kids had a blast throwing water balloons, swimming in the pool, making paper airplanes, and then sitting and watching the Disney Planes movie. It was a great afternoon.
Sigh. Can I just freeze time? I really do try to soak up every moment with my kids, but time is just flying by. I just pray that they remember all the fun days like today, and forget all my messy mommy moments.
