6 trips around the sun

We celebrated my littlest guy’s birthday this week. He had chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and went to school. I made a 6 year badge and crown, per request.

We joined him later at school for his birthday ceremony which involved him carrying the earth and walking  around the sun 6 times to represent each year of his life. He stopped at me each time around and I shared something about his life to the class.  It was all so perfectly sweet and his classmates were completely joyous about the special occasion.

Then we came home to presents and dinner out, where an opera singer sang to I-guy in Italian. That was pretty hilarious and kinda uncomfortable at the same time.  Then home for delicious vegan cupcakes and playtime with new gifts.  He asked for art stuff, so he received a carrying case full of creative items.  The kid is mine, yes he is!
