My little superhero turned 7 on Monday.
OK - I caved. I ALWAYS make my kids' cakes. I love to do it. I love to do something really creative and fun but this time around I ORDERED cupcakes from our local bakery. I felt like a bad mommy (not that it is bad to order your cakes - I have just always done it myself as a special gift to my kids) but honestly, the weight that was lifted off my shoulders once we placed the order (which was a spur of the moment decision) was fantastic. We ordered a red, white, and blue theme and used photoshop to create these SuperColes to put on the top. He loved them.
I just loved the cards he got - some of the kids made super sweet cards in superhero theme...
I'm so in love with his little stinker. He is very funny. He hates school but is super smart. He still cuddles with me and loves to cuddle with his baby sister. I'm always worried about him getting lost in the shuffle but he's growing up more and more and starting to identify with his older sibling better. He is terrible at cleaning his room but wonderful at giving hugs. He is my one kids that I get most random, unsolicited gestures of love.
