Today you…

At the Gardens

Today you…

  • turn 9 years old.
  • had breakfast in bed, at your request.
  • ate a jelly-filled doughnut and four Munchkins from Dunkin’ Donuts.
  • wanted your little sister to be able to have breakfast in bed, too, so you invited her up onto your top bunk with you.
  • will be having cookies and milk in class as a special treat from Mom. (Dad would love to be there, too, but work prevents it.)
  • requested M&M cookie sandwiches for your class birthday treat.
  • didn’t want me to come and have lunch with you at school. You’re too old for that now.
  • are looking forward to going rollerskating to celebrate your birthday, just the four of us.
  • are really working on being good.
  • are concerned that we’re spending too much money on your birthday. (We’re not spending that much, really.)
  • are making me realize how quickly time passes.
  • make me wish I could keep you home from school and spoil you rotten for a day.
  • make me proud.

Happy birthday, Buddy. I love you.
