"Mom, can I just ask you a question about me?"
"Sure buddy, what's up!" (me thinking he had some deep desire for details on his earthly sojourn)
"Well, today is my last day of being six, and I was wondering if you would let me play Wii one last time while I'm still six?"
Yes, I let him--cause I'm a pushover, and it was definitely a creative ploy! And then I cried after we said family prayers that night, and I had to hug him one last time while he was a six year old-- because I'm sappy like that.
And since I'm sure you're dying to know about that Tornado cake.....absolute nightmare! You try defying gravity with a cake. It's not an easy task. I got 2 hours of sleep last night. I went to bed praying that I had done a good enough job and it would still be standing today. Thankfully, it was. And Andrew's big eyes and reply of, "That's Awesome!" made it all worth it.
I won't ruin his birthday, I'll wait until tomorrow to inform him that I will be making his birthday cake selections from now on....and they'll be in the form of a square...a flat one....lying down on the cake board!
Happy Birthday Andrew! We love you and are so grateful you picked us to be your family. ( And we wish you would stop growing, cause it's got to be embarrassing to make your Mom cry so much....and we can't afford your shoes!)
