One week ago, this little bundle of sweetness and smiles:
Turned 6 years old.
I can hardly stand it! And I hate that I am a whole week late on blogging about my special middle kiddo. His birthday came right on the heels of spring break (where we took 2 separate mini vacations that I have not blogged about yet.)
But this post isn’t about spring break.
It’s about Logan.
Logan, in a nutshell…He loves all things Lego, loves Star Wars, loves peanut butter, jelly and honey sandwiches, loves Kindergarten, has lost two teeth, loves his little sister, loves (but barely tolerates) his older brother, still gives me kisses and hugs at school when I go eat lunch with him, never stops moving, barely eats meals but loves to snack, never wants to talk about it when he gets hurt or has a bad dream, loves Chick-Fil-A , loves french fries, eats so much ketchup that I must buy it in bulk, has a million friends, loves to play his DSi and would play all day if left on his own, and still flashes that huge Logan smile, just like he has been since he was a month old.
We started off his birthday morning with presents, balloons (a last minute request…while Derek was tucking him in on his birthday eve, he asked if he could have a bunch of balloons hanging “everywhere balloons can go” for his birthday. How could we say no to that?), a special breakfast of monkey bread, and traditional birthday boy pictures.
(Picture overload, straight ahead.)
I had to include that one because it is just so classic Logan. He makes funny faces all the time!
And I also have to include this next one because in a rare moment of comradery, the boys stood together like bff’s and let me take a picture. And the angels sang hallelujah!
I sent him off to school with a spring in his step and it promised to be a great day. I brought him his lunch of choice (popcorn chicken, french fries, and a blue slushy from Sonic) and a cake to share with his class (funfetti cake with chocolate frosting, which is totally my favorite too and was devoured by all the kids. It was a huge hit!)
After school, he spent time playing with his new toys before his birthday dinner of choice: Texas Roadhouse. Let me just take a moment and pat myself on the back for that one. Somehow, I’ve trained my kids to pick good restaurants for birthday dinner. Not only do I get out of cooking for a night, but we eat great food. None of this McDonald’s business. Let’s go eat steak! Of course, now that I’ve spoken of it, I’m sure it will come back to bite me someday. But for now, I’m giving myself props for that parenting win!
All in all, it was a really wonderful day celebrating our Logan Bennett. And the celebrating continues! This weekend, we are taking him and a few friends to the Kemah Boardwalk for a fun-filled day. He calls it his “fake birthday” which just makes me laugh.
That could pretty much sum up Logan: he just makes us laugh. He’s a joy, and I am so glad that he is mine.
Happy birthday to my Logan, aka Logie B aka Logie Bear aka Luby. You’re my favorite 6 year old in the whole world.
