    20 Questions with Ben

    My first “baby” turns 7 on Friday. Seven! And while 7 is old (compared to the once little bitty baby) I find myself having to remind myself that he’s only 7. He’s smart, funny, and says things that are wise beyond his years and that sometimes leads me to have slightly unrealistic expectations for the guy. And like every momma at some point or another…or often, you think, Am I screwing my kid up? This questionnaire has been floating all over blogland and Facebook and honestly I was a little hesitant and nervous to hear what Ben might say.

    A Very “Avenger” 6th Birthday

    Ben’s birthday fell on a Thursday this year so we celebrated by eating lunch with him at school and cupcakes for his class. That night he got to pick where he wanted to eat and he had a tough time choosing between his favorite pizza place and Olive Garden, but the OG won out in the end. After dinner he opened his presents from us. He was so excited about the Lego mini figures and could care less about his new bike and helmet. I mean, look at this face. He reluctantly shared his new Legos with his brother. It lasted about 30 seconds. Due to poor planning on my…
