Ah, Birthdays

For all the fuss and bother of birthday parties (and I will be blogging about the latest), there is something sweet and satisfying about getting the kids through another year of life.

J turned 7 last week. As is our custom, birthday child gets to pick the birthday meal. J boy picked Chinese food and we feasted at home. Well, the girlie goo not so much as there isn't a Chinese version of grilled cheese, mac n cheese or pizza. But the three of us did enjoy our meal.

S perked up when we had CHOCOLATE for dessert, but as it apparent from the attached clip, she may need a lung function test.

But as we enjoyed our quiet family celebration, I couldn't help but be amazed how that squishy newborn we marvelled at 7 years ago, is now reading, writing, riding a bike, playing on the computer, making friends, conducting experiments, concocting potions and most vexingly having his own ideas about things.

Happy Birthday Bearsy Boo!
