Birthday Blues

The Boy was sick on Tuesday and we kept him home on Wednesday too, just to make sure he had enough rest. The Man thinks he had what I had at Christmas. Whatever it was, it was not fun. Three years ago he was sick like this and we ended up taking him to the emergency room. He was such a trooper but it was a miserable experience.

Wednesday was his birthday. Happy 5th Birthday, Hunny Bear!!! We stayed home to rest. We played all day and he took a fabulous nap (to make up for only sleeping for three hours the night before). Who am I kidding? I took a fabulous nap, too. He opened up a present from Mommy and Daddy.

His party is on Saturday for which I can hardly wait. He still has a little bit of a tough time understanding that his party is not on the same day as his birthday. We told him that he could pick where he wanted to eat dinner on the day of his birthday and he picked McDonald’s. Then he said, “Where are my friends going to sit?” It was useless to try to explain it to him.
