My big boy turned 7 yesterday. It almost seems surreal. One minute I was bringing him home from Poland and the next he is 7 years old. I can't believe how the time has flown by. My little toddler chatterbox that ran around charming everyone is now this big kid who is responsible, extremely smart and still charming everyone. I am so proud to be his mother.
In lue of a large birthday bash, Austin chose to have a sleep over with his best buddy Zack. Him and Zack have been best friends since they where 3 and attend the same pre-school. I thought it would be fun for the two boys to hang out and play video games. They seemed to have a great time but huge sighs where heard from miles around when I exclaimed..."it's clean up time!". I know, worst mother ever. They went to bed with little fuss. I think they where just exhausted. Suddenly in what seemed like the middle of the night I hear little voices. Only to discover it was 6 am and the boys where raring to go! They where excited because we planned lunch, shopping and a movie. By 11 am I mustered enough strength to get them going. Lunch at Mighty Taco(their choice), shopping at Target(an experience I choose to NOT relive) and then Alvin & The Chipmunks movie. By 4 pm I was exhausted and returned Zack home. Austin was excited about his adventures with his buddy and I SURVIVED!
On Sunday we celebrated as we always do. We had a family party for Austin, My mother(same birthday as Austin), My brother in law Jose(2/11), My sister Gabrielle(2/14) and my mothers husband Anaur(1/29). That's right, February is my killer month. This considering my other sister Jennifer also had her birthday on he 5th. We enjoyed are day a lot. The 4 little boys just ran from room to room enjoying the company and visiting with family. It was a wonderful, stress free day that is until someone filled the marshmallow shooters that my mother
bought Austin. Let's just say I am still finding marshmallows in every crevice of this house!
