I asked him late this morning (after he finally awoke), “What was your favorite thing about your party?”
He said, “All of it, except for how it ended.” He was very sweet and grateful today for his party, which just goes to show that the saying “all’s well that ends well” doesn’t necessarily have to be true. Or maybe it’s absolutely true, and the real ending was this morning when things felt more optimistic for him after a good night of sleep.
Either way, he was happy, grateful and content when I scooped him up into my lap this morning. Very tired (see second photo), but happy, grateful and content. I could tell he was having a blast the entire time... or at least until I could no longer keep my eyes open and I had to go to bed.
That makes ME happy, grateful and content.
He had some awesome bed-head going on this morning, so I pretty-please asked him if I could get some photos of him out in the party cave where they spent the majority of their partying last night. Tried my best to capture it, as it seemed too much a part of the story not to.
Three more weeks of summer break for this one. I hope we can fit much more in to those three weeks (which I’m expecting to fly by). But even if we can’t do it all, we’re checking off all the big goals.
Birthday/Pizza Party: ✅
