5 years ago today....(plus 8 days)

This guy was born. His mama has never been the same. For his birthday, he wanted to go swimming. So we did, one day prior because it was Labor Day and big daddy was off work. My camera's batteries were dead, so you'll have to picture that part in your mind. Cute kids, a little dolly who looks like a piece of candy you just want to gobble up in her swimsuit, a dad with translucent white legs (eek!) 3 boys with mowhawks and a girl who is getting much too tall and swims quite well. And there was a mom. Afterwards, Burger King was the place to be.
Where else are you treated like Royalty just for walking in the door?
Kids meals. Only on a special occasion like a birthday celebration.
Good timing-Deutsch kids had the playplace all to themselves.
Baskin Robbins for dessert. Blue sprinkled ice cream anyone?
His actual birthday, the next day. He wanted spaghetti and corn for supper. Alrighty0.
Brownies and ice cream in place of cake. Not one with a sweet tooth, he ate a couple of bites then ran off to play.
King dad serenades his young prince. It was beautiful. He sings as well as his legs are white.
(I love you Bobby! It's cool how you glow in the dark! :)

Jayla wrapped up some costumes for him that our neighbors brought over that their boys had outgrown and made a card. Sweet. Dad brought him home a Leapster and an Iron Man card. Sweet.


You told me you wouldn't turn 5! Remember? Stinker bug, you did anyway! You're my cuddle kid. How long can it last with all these passing birthdays? Will you always sit on your mommy's lap making her legs fall asleep and hold her hand and ask to sleep with her at night? Please answer: yes. How about those soft little cheeks of yours? Will they stay so silky smooth? Please answer: yes. Will you always tell me I am the best mom in the world and you love me so much and throw a major fit if we don't sit beside eachother while watching movies? Please answer: yes.

You will? Oh thank you Tyden! I knew I could count on you! You are the berries. How much do I love you? I could not count the ways my dear son.....more than the stars in the sky and the grains of sand on the shore. You are precious in my sight, loved in my heart and wonderful to know. Happy, happy birthday boy.

There is nothing you can do that will ever make me stop loving you. I promise you that.
