Big E's 6th Birthday!
Hard to believe Big E is 6 today. Six year's ago I was miserable. After 21 hours of labor with an epidural that did not work on the right side of my body I was exhausted. Today, I am still exhausted.
Big E has had a good day. He had his first sleep over last night. They slept soundly, had pancake's this morning and then went to church. After he got home from church he had lunch and then it was time for his presents. He was shocked to get an Nintendo DS Lite!!! His baby sister gave him Mario Kart to go with his new big boy toy. Needless to say that is all he has done since. He is figuring it out. He was even kind enough to let me play twice. I told him that I had already played in the car rider line at his school. He thought that was funny. I told him I had to make sure it worked. Truth be told I had to make sure he was going to be able to do it. Plus, I finished reading the book I have been working on (Blogging For Dummies) and did not feel up to starting another book. I thought playing the DS would be a great way to kill an hour a day. Hee! Hee! I initially thought he was too young for a handheld computer game. But I am also very tired of all the little plastic toys in the house that do not last, bores him and then they break. I think the DS was a good choice. It is also something I can use for punishment when his sassy mouth gets way out of hand. He has played all afternoon with only 10 minute breaks about every 30 minute's. Honestly, I do not know how his thumbs are standing the workout.
Still can not believe that my first born baby is 6. He is getting so old.
He will have a party after the new year. Hopefully when it is warmer outside. He loves camping and riding his motorcycle. It is just too cold this year to get a group of boys together for a campout and fun go cart ride's and fishing. He understands this and is Ok with the decision. I feel bad 'moving' his birthday, but to give him what he wants the most it is necessary.
He is so cute! His poor lips are getting very chapped. He is on the couch playing his new game, with his tongue out of his mouth...licking his lips.
