My Baby Boy is now FIVE years old!!!!
And did we celebrate! This past Saturday morning, Cliff and Atticus went to Skip's for their usual "Man Day" breakfast with Uncle Fred and Boppa, where Atticus was surprised with birthday candles on his "usual"--a Mickey Mouse-shaped chocolate chip pancake!
Atticus' favorite waitress, Bonnie, gave him a dollar bill for a birthday present :)
After "Man Morning," Atticus came home to find the house decorated and the stage set for his big party. After chanting "let's get this party started" about fifty million times, his guests arrived and the fun began. As a parent, I can't believe how much easier a "boy" birthday party is than a "girl" birthday party. The kids had a blast playing outside, eating pizza and destroying the pirate ship pinata!
Atticus was soooo in love with the Hot Wheels cake that Hattie and I made for his party that he insisted we make a second one for our family party on Monday (his actual birthday). Funny how something that looks so awful to my adult eyes looks like the Absolutely Best Birthday Cake Ever to a little boy!!
Atticus got some bigtime birthday hugs from his favorite auntie!
