yesterday was bittersweet.
it was quite possibly the last day i would ever have a 2 year old.
2 is not my favorite age.
it is wonderful in so many ways, but really?
its also more tiring for me than a brand new babe.
but, if we’re not having any more kids, then yesterday was my last day as a mom of a 2-year old.
but today… TODAY!
today i have a big huge THREE year old!
we are at my parents’ house, enjoying family and long-time family friends that we have vacationed with since before my birth.
it is heaven for silas to have 10 new people to show off his “bike widing skills”.
he’s now decided to ride with his feet tucked up on the bar in front of the seat.
freaks me out, but that kid has balance!
only a few crashes, which si declared were pretend bloods.
his aunt denise surprised him this morning with a super healthy breakfast of sprinkled donuts and sugar cereals, with a balloon filled ceiling above.
what a sweet gift!
we’re spreading out the gift giving throughout the day, and pretty much letting him do whatever he wants (other than skipping his nap).
he’s snuggled with his cousins watching toy story right now.
when i asked him a few days ago what he wanted for his birthday, he said, “i want sprinkles on it”.
ok, sounds easy.
and then i asked what toys he might want.
he said, “you can just get my Buzz and put him in a box and put a string around it.”
ok, so he seems pretty easy, right?
hopefully i’ll write a long mushy post about my sweet baby boy, but today i just don’t have it in me to start crying!
ps – as a thank you for reading this long post, i’ll let you in on a little secret:
