Pretty cheeky for a kid whose 6th birthday is in 27 hours. Yes, we are counting in hours now. We have been counting down for 30 days. Aidan says, "15 days until my birthday!" I say "15 more days of sassiness!" Yesterday he suggested that we have fireworks for his birthday. You know, the kind they have at parks for the 4th of July... I kid not when I mention his sassiness. He is now working to earn back his birthday parties that were taken away. Last year my threat was to take away his super powers. That worked and still kills me that he believed it.
May has been a very long month. I was sick for 3 weeks with the Parvo virus. I thought I had the flu and then I figured I had some rare bone disease with only hours to live. Turns out I was suffering Rheumatoid Arthritis-like symptoms that makes me feel very sad for my elders. I'm getting caught up on business and housework and all the other crud I let go of while I wallowed in self-pity and could hardly move.
Yesterday I sewed a couple applique t-shirts to get ready for Aidan's birthday. Today I cut out a Spacebot pattern for a sweet present and tonight I intend to make my annual birthday bunting for him. I just finished making M&M cookies for school treats. Tomorrow I'm making Prince Cupcakes for the resident prince. I'll be bringing them to a friend's house on Saturday who is graciously hosting a small birthday party for him. In fact, I don't have to host any type of birthday party as my mom and dad are hosting his family birthday party!
Aidan is doing great! He just had his cardiologist check-up and walked on the treadmill. He walked 3 minutes longer than he did a year ago. As usual, he charmed everyone. Dr. Frommelt says he is one of her more active patients! He may need to get his fenestration closed but there is now rush. If we see him tire more frequently, then we shall proceed with it.
Aidan loves math, science, art, Legos, Lego video games, books, his daddy, his grandma, Junie B. Jones, swimming lessons, digging in dirt, baseball, talking, pushing his boundaries, every single toy he has ever owned and can't bear to part with, Star Wars, and asking questions. He loves to try new food. He likes to help his daddy. He loves to play fetch with Mucha. He loves to traipse around in flip-flops. He has freckles. He is built like his daddy and has his hair and skin coloring but looks like me. He loves to snuggle and crawls into bed with me in the morning which is fun except for the mornings where he moves NON STOP. He has lost 2 teeth. He is a smart-aleck. He argues very well. He is thoughtful, sweet, silly, smart, sassy, goofy, crafty, loving, precious and just plain fun. See Aidan - I remember some things!
This week also marks Jeff's and my 8th anniversary. I have an awesome husband, a healthy boy, great family and friends, my health, and a wonderful house and home. What more could a gal want besides tickets to Broadway?
