He wanted a heart-shaped cake (which works out very well because that's our only cake pan ... ) with "alternating strawberry and blueberry smiley face" and so, I delivered. He's been very consistent in this request and I'm guessing he must be logging less time on Pinterest than previous years because in the past it's always been, "oh just a train and dump truck 89 layer cake" etc. Bless you, simple cake requests. We let the kids make their own pizzas (if putting cheese and toppings on mom-rolled/sauced dough circles counts ... ) for dinner. Simon took the three older kids to a movie this afternoon which felt more like a birthday present to me because I could whip up the boxed cake and wrap presents in perfect peace and quiet. A new tradition is born? Please.
He asked for a trash truck and a teddy bear (didn't deliver on the teddy because we are at max stuffed animal capacity around here and he already has one) and was thrilled with his trash truck and the Magnatiles I finally sprung for after hearing so many good things about them. He got to stay up a little later for his birthday so he took the time to practice writing, "happy birthday Sebastian" and when he got stuck on "birthday" he asked Simon how to spell, "Sebastian is having a sad birthday" due to said frustration. Made us laugh like the parents that we are.
A lot of people (including myself) say that Bosco is the spitting image of Bash and if he grows up to be anything like him - he'll be a lucky kid.
Happy birthday sweet Sebastian! We're so thankful for you.
