I think I'm getting a little mushy over this birthday thing. I've kind of been dreading Adam turning 5, because to me, that signifies "big kid." No longer a baby, toddler or preschooler. I *like* my kids being little. I'm not ready to have 2 grade-schoolers.
In five short years, he has gone from this sweet little face:
To this handsome young man:
My days of just him and I jetting around town together are coming to a close; I'm very sad about that. He's my buddy, my little shopper who makes everyone smile wherever he goes. We even have the same taste in music - we've got no love for the Bieber, but Big Time Rush? Yeah, I'll go ahead and admit that right here - we love singing along to BTR in the car together. :) It must be the boy-band thing from when NKOTB was the bomb.
Even though Adam was diagnosed with strep throat last night at Urgent Care, after 2 doses of antibiotics, he was rearing to go this morning. I kept him home from preschool because it hadn't been 24 hours yet (I'm a rule-follower like that!) but that didn't stop us from having our own birthday fun together.
We hit Target since he had a couple of gift cards burning a hole in his pocket. :) Then he was hungry, so at 10am, the kid downed 2 hot dogs. Then he said he wanted to eat at the Target Cafe for his birthday dinner.
Yeah, I'm going to have to veto that one.
Then we hit Toys R Us for his birthday balloon and to pick out a new bike! He picked a green one - his favorite color - to match his pump. Then on to the grocery store to pick out a small cake for tonight after dinner.
After a 2 week hiatus, we've got Dex on board again today. I just needed a break and I have to say, it was nice. But, I'm starting to notice some random lows, and with all the sickness and birthday activity, I thought it was time to put on a new one. I'm crossing my fingers that it's a good sensor!
I think I'm going to try to convince my little guy to take a nap with me - I think he's pooped out from all the activity this morning! Thanks for all the birthday wishes for Adam - y'all are wonderful!
