This past Saturday was my first son, Maxfield’s birthday. He turned 4. My Father-in-law used to always wish me a Happy Mother’s Day on his birthday, a sentiment that always made me smile.
It was a day filled with trains, superheroes, cupcakes, family, friends, more superheroes, and only one meltdown:
Of course, almost every gift we got him required batteries (which we forgot- rookies!) and an advanced degree to assemble. The big wheel is probably overdue by about a year or so, but he still didn’t have one, and sometimes big wheels are just better than bikes…. plus, little bro can take it for a spin.
Sportin’ a gift from mom, superhero style…
The cake- before it “melted”. It wasn’t an ice cream cake- don’t ask me what happened!
The wish: “That we can all go to the zoo!” Doesn’t that just make your heart melt?!?
A good time was had by all. Thanks to everyone who celebrated!
Incidentally, we received our package from our Aussie swap partners two days before Max’s big day, so he had some added birthday surprises! I’ll post more on that later, but let me just say Sarah C totally rocks!!!!!!
