When I asked the wee man what he wanted to do yesterday he seemed pretty happy just to stay inside and do lots of different arts and crafts activities (I'm secretly becoming a pro) and play with his birthday toys. Sporting a snotty nose I figured he was not feeling that well and just could not face the outdoors. We avoided the TV all morning so I was not too fussed. After his nap though his first question was to ask me where we were going? He then suggested all the places I had mentioned in the morning which unfortunately we would be a little late for. He settled for taking his bike to the park and having a proper little play. Daddy came a long as well and as you can see took charge of the camera by the end. Mummy therefore got some proper play time herself.
Whoosh! I know, all of us parents know, time waits for no parent and our children grow awfully past. The changes over the past months have been immense and turned him into a proper wee man. When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday it was simple chocolate and cake. Well he got that and so much more. It was a simple day at home but we included all of his favourite things, picnic meals which included pasta and chips, chocolate, and we tried our best to present a chocolate Spiderman cake. We had a cake cutting party with the grandparents and nonni on Skype. He got a little bit spoilt on the present front but it was nice to see him actually want to play with them. So that's it BAM! my wee man is 3.
