What could be better than swords, guns, boots, a personalized picture book where you and your brother are the star knights, and birthday cake....
....a surprise party for a 5 year old! My Big Boy turned 5 last Tuesday. When asked what type of party he wanted, he informed me that he wanted a surprise party. Sigh. How to explain this to him. Well.... we did our best.
On his actual birthday we had a family dinner and family presents. Then on Thursday we arranged for his Daddy to take him to the book store to pick out a book. He returned to 5 of his friends and his brother hiding behind a couch with blowers. It was perfect and priceless. He loved it. It was pretty easy for Mom and Dad, and he was the center of attention. What else could a little boy want.
I can't believe I have a 5 year old. Let's don't even talk about Kindergarten...and don't hold your breath because my little girl is almost one!
