On Friday our sweet Jack turned six. I’ve talked about my anxiety with each passing birthday and this one was no different. I really tried to soak in all the little moments instead of feeling sad that time is going so quickly. Friday morning we celebrated with a birthday donut and then I brought Jack lunch at school. That afternoon we saw Toy Story 4 (go see it!) before coming back home where the birthday boy opened presents and requested a happy meal for dinner.
Saturday was Jack’s birthday party at our neighborhood pool. You can imagine my panic when I woke up to thunderstorms, dark skies, and temperatures in the 60s. Thankfully the rain stopped and the sun came out creating the perfect pool conditions.
He really took his time making a wish 🙂Throughout the years I’ve asked the boys the following questions on their birthday and recorded their answers. I love to look back and see what they said and hopefully they will appreciate someday as well.
