This week we had the second of our little ones birthday’s.
My Little Man, my baby, turned seven years old!
My babies are all growing up. In just two weeks it will be Star’s 12th birthday. So I will have a seven, a ten and a twelve year old. Definitely not babies!
I talked with the Little Man earlier this year and he said he was happy not to have a birthday party. After Boo’s manic day I was really happy we’d come to this decision. I still wanted to make the day special for him though so I invited my friend and her two children over for a party type lunch. We had sandwiches and chicken dippers, crisps and chocolate bars. (Totally unhealthy which is how birthday spreads should be.)
And of course we had cake!
For anyone not knowing about Minecraft, this is Stampy Longnose one of the characters and he’s made up of pixels, which is why he is made with squares.
After the party lunch the children played lovely together for over an hour. Then on the evening the Little Man’s grown up brother and sister played Mario Party with him which made him so happy.
Before he went to bed I said to him,
“I’m sure you’ve grown bigger today” and he replied,
“yes, I’ve grown bigger which means my brain has got bigger too and I’m more intelligent.”
I love my Little Man.
I love all my children and it scares me how quick they grow, but on the other hand, I’m so happy to have this time with them and I really hope and pray that I have long enough to see them grow even bigger.
