Last week Ryder turned 3. All day long he kept singing happy birthday to himself; he was excited. He could not wait until daddy got home so we could have cake and sing happy birthday.
He requested a train cake-- which I happily made for him.
Eric made it home, we ate dinner and then it was present time.
We asked Lucas and Alex to stay back and let Ryder open his own presents...
Luckily he was still happy and didn't seem to mind too much
He loved the little piano from his brother...
He was so excited to blow out his candle that he blew it out before we even sang happy birthday. We lit it again, he happily danced and sang along
And then.... well watch to see what happens...
Yep-- real life kicked in.
The guilt/I am up to no good- look on her face when we relit the candle a second time says it all.
Real life kicked in.
It was a a wonderful birthday and he loved it... real life and all.
