The morning of Caleb’s birthday my Husband says to me “Can you believe Caleb is 9 today?” “I said he’s not 9!” So he asks Caleb “How old are you?” His response”9.” I’m his Mother and of course I know how old he is, but it sounded surreal. I just couldn’t believe it. It just seemed like he would stay 8 forever! I know we all say it “Where does the time go?” You blink and they’re a year older. Seems like just yesterday his was my chubby Michelin man. Caleb is the middle child and he definitely has middle child syndrome. He is so sweet but can be one of the moodiest kids you will know. Especially if he’s not fed. I should have bought him one of those t-shirts that says “I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry.” Haha! He will worry you to death on anything whether it’s a book fair coming up and he wants money for a book or wanting to go to one of his friend’s Birthday parties. He gives the best hugs! His nickname is smiley because he has the biggest smile and is always smiling. For Caleb’s birthday My Husband cooked breakfast for him. I usually cook breakfast for the kids on their birthdays normally for dinner if their birthday is on a school night.
He wanted to go to Dave and Busters so for lunch we headed over there. Our Host gave Caleb a brownie sundae! Unfortunately, Caleb doesn’t like chocolate so the rest of us enjoyed the sundae for him! It was so good! The kids ran around and played games until all their money was gone.
Before we headed home we stopped at Target to get his gift. He kept changing his mind on what he wanted so instead of surprising him with a gift we decided we would just bring him to pick one out. After going up and down the aisles several times he finally decided on a Nerf gun. I’m not a big fan on any type of toy gun but I was ready to go so I just let him get it. Cake time!! Well cookie cake time!! Caleb isn’t a big fan of cake either( what kind of kid doesn’t like cake?) so I made him a funfetti cookie cake. We sang happy birthday to our sweet Caleb as he smiled the whole time. We are so thankful that God blessed us with him and we cherish every moment.
