And just like that, he wakes up a six year old.
He was full of all sorts of emotions as he dined on his breakfast.
My lunch buddies
For months Ryder has been asking if we could go to a Mexican restaurant because he wanted to wear the hat and have the birthday song sung to him. Then after months of waiting the moment came. He was mortified. I thought he was going to cry. While putting him to bed I finally had a chance to ask him about it. His exact words... "I wish I could have kept that umbrella. (I figured out he meant sombrero, but I felt embarrassed." I'm glad he was brave and did it even though it was scary.
Recovering with dessert
How did this kiddo get to be six?
And the weekend before his birthday we visited with Papa Joe to celebrate his birthday. Papa Joe was nice enough to share his cake with Ryder and Brayden since their birthdays were close too.
Ryder also had a little friend party a few days later. Riding in the car with six year olds is hilarious. If you ever get the opportunity, jump on it!
Happy Birthday, Sweet Boy! To the moon and back.
