Mick turned six today. Where does the time go? I know every parent says that, but, really, where does the time go? There is nothing about six that says baby. Six says, "Look at me, I'm a kid! Full-energy, high-octane, capital K-I-D, kid!" For his birthday, the boy got a mountain bike, a mountain bike with gears! That ain't no baby bike!
Here I sit enjoying this moment of birthday celebration, but I am also wistful for baby moments gone past. Don't get me wrong, I don't miss midnight feedings, poopy diapers, or temper tantrums. But how I miss those moments snuggling a baby. A quiet snuggle with a sleeping baby may be the closest thing to Heaven there is on Earth.
But enough of my syrupy mom dribble, how did Mick spend his 6th birthday? Living it up, of course. We started with a giant pancake breakfast at a local diner.
Next, was his special day celebration in his classroom - including both a crown and special chair for the day. As soon as school was out, we were off to Pump It Up for a bounce 'til you burst birthday party. Why wait until the weekend, let's party today. As if that wasn't enough, it was back home for gifts and more junk food. Finally, a soft landing right into bed. We are all exhausted, but it was a great birthday.
That is life in MomZania.
