We always have a birthday surprise ready for him, when he first wakes up on his big day! Daddy drew him a special something, we made him a card, and then filled a candy box with dollar bills!
Aunt Sissy and Uncle Danny came later, bringing him gifts and birthday spankings. She really spoiled him this year. Then, we took him to his fave restaurant, O'Charley's to eat dinner.
|They even brought him a little cake!|
|He got his first tablet!|
Then...along comes 7 crazy boys for pizza and pokemon battles! It was hectic from the very first second! I "tried" to keep it low stress, but I guess nothing is "low stress" with 9 kids in the house..lol!
I can't give him too much of a hard time, though... he wants to grow up and become a "teenager" so fast, and I just want to keep him little, I can already see struggles ahead! lol! So far, he insists on having long hair, that hangs in his eyes, he wants "cool" shoes (even if they have holes in them, like his jeans), he insists of doing everything himself, getting really mad at me when I try to help...saying, "MOM!" This little guy of mine does great in school but would much rather be playing Pokemon with his friends. He is addicted to video games on his Nintendo DS or Tablet, but does just as much writing and artwork on his own creative books! His drawing is amazing! He is also wise beyond his years when it comes to understanding the important things in life, he understands God and what He has in store for him, there have been a many occasion that he "teaches" me, just what I need to know. I love this boy and am so proud of the bigger boy that he is becoming!
