Today Mason officially turned the big SIX. Here are some things that happened today to remind me that he is getting older and more, I guess you could say mature.
This morning I missed a call on my cell phone from my mom. She wanted me to call her back she she could wish Mason a happy birthday. I just handed the phone to Mason and told him to call her. No problem. It’s not that he hasn’t been doing this for a long time, its just that it still makes me laugh at how easy he maneuvers the cell phone (and all other electronic devices).
After lunch we planned to see the movie Kung Fu Panda with some family. We got to the theater and the most excited words out of Mason’s mouth were, “Hey, Indiana Jones! I want to watch that movie.” The cartoon about cute animals that fight the bad guy just wasn’t as exciting to him as I thought it would be. (Milo however did like the movie.)
For his birthday we went to dinner (Mason’s choice of course) with just us. As the boys were waiting for me to make some phone calls before we left they started drawing some pictures. When Mason finished he handed me a folded paper and asked me to take it to the restaurant and give it to him after dinner. There was a beautiful picture with a blue sky, sun and car driving along. Inside the card said something like, “To Mason – I love you – love mom” (all spelled correctly this time). So basically Mason made me a card to give to him for his birthday. What a funny kid.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY MASON! You are officially old enough to start first grade, strong enough to pour your own milk & mature enough to take care of your mom. — Now if only we could get you to stop shooting your straw wrappers at everyone 🙂
